Programming Tips - Win32: How do I resize a window?

Somewhat inconveniently, this requires the position of the window (x,y) so you can not just set the size of a window. If you only to want to simply set the width and height of a window you need to first get the width in order to call MoveWindow().
const BOOL bRepaint = TRUE; ::MoveWindow(hwnd, x, y, width, height, bRepaint);
