CopyRect function (winuser.h)

The CopyRect function copies the coordinates of one rectangle to another.


BOOL CopyRect(
  [out] LPRECT     lprcDst,
  [in]  const RECT *lprcSrc


[out] lprcDst

Pointer to the RECT structure that receives the logical coordinates of the source rectangle.

[in] lprcSrc

Pointer to the RECT structure whose coordinates are to be copied in logical units.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero.


Because applications can use rectangles for different purposes, the rectangle functions do not use an explicit unit of measure. Instead, all rectangle coordinates and dimensions are given in signed, logical values. The mapping mode and the function in which the rectangle is used determine the units of measure.
