CMyApp to get access to CMyView?

I have a SDI CFormView app.

I want to add a item on the menu that will run a function
that I have declared in CMyView. (ie CMyView::Run)

The class wizard inserted a function (CMyApp::OnRun) in CMyApp that will get run everytime the menu item is selected.

How do call the function CMyView::Run from within
CMyApp::OnRun()?

Is there some way to get a pointer to the view from
within the CMyView class (like AfxGetView())?

let me know if you need more clarification.
thanks

Sure.  Here's my code that I used once to make it work!

   CVisaApp* pApp = CVisaApp::GetApp( );

// If the view is already opened, then just go to it!

   CCountryView* pCountryView = NULL;

   POSITION posTemplate = pApp->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition( );
   
   while( posTemplate )
   {
      CDocTemplate* pTemplate = (CDocTemplate*) pApp->GetNextDocTemplate( posTemplate );

      POSITION posDocument = pTemplate->GetFirstDocPosition( );
     
      while( posDocument )
      {
      // If we found a document of this type, then we're already done.  Just activate it!

         CDocument* pDocument = pTemplate->GetNextDoc( posDocument );

         if( pDocument->IsKindOf( RUNTIME_CLASS( CSignatureDoc )))
         {
         // Now iterate all of the windows and activate the first one!

            POSITION posView = pDocument->GetFirstViewPosition( );

            if( posView )
            {
               CView* pView = pDocument->GetNextView( posView );

               ((CMDIChildWnd*) pView->GetParentFrame( ))->MDIActivate( );
            }

            return;
         }
         else if( pDocument->IsKindOf( RUNTIME_CLASS( CCountryDoc )))
         {
         // Now iterate all of the windows and activate the first one!

            POSITION posView = pDocument->GetFirstViewPosition( );

            if( posView )
            {
               pCountryView = (CCountryView*) pDocument->GetNextView( posView );
            }
         }

      }
   }
