How to change the position and size of static element in dialog based Mfc?

I have a CStatic box by drag and drop now I want to change the position and size of that element in the code. How can I do this?
CStatic *pWnd= (CStatic *)GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_PICTURE); //Id of CStatic Control

I got rcRect but how to set the new rect value what is the function used to set new rect values.

I guess GetClientRect and MoveWindow Will help you on that.
