I have a MDI app.  If I have 3 or more child windows open at a time, and a close one off the 3 open windows, I want the remaining windows to automatically retile.  A have a custom tile function in my CMainFrame and need to call it to reposition the remaining child windows.  If I call this from the child I am closing, I get an ASSERTION because the child the calls reposition, is destroyed.  I need to call this reposition AFTER the client is destroyed.  I imagine I do this from CMainFrame but can not figure it out.  All suggestions welcome and code samples greatly appreciated.

Check IsWindow(hWnd) before reposition

How do I know when to check IsWindow()against my reposition, from CMainFrame?  Is there a member in CMainFrame that is called AFTER the Child is destroyed?
