In an MDI app with 3 child (CFormView) windows, how can I
close 2 specific child windows of the 3 with a single
command button on one of the forms?
PostMessage(WM_COMMAND, ID_FILE_CLOSE) closes all windows.

Please add sample code.  Thanks
It should look like this:

void CMyView1::OnButtonClick()
{
   "Close" CMyView1;  //current child window
   "Close" CMyView2;

   // Leave CMyView3 Open
}
