How do I Hide Child Views in a MDI Application?

I have a list of CViews which are Child windows.  I want to iterate over this list and HIDE (not close or destroy) each Child View in the list.  I can't get this to work. So far I have tried:

CMainFrame * pFrame = (CMainFrame *)::AfxGetMainWnd();
POSITION pos = m_lstViews.GetHeadPosition();
CView * pCurrentView = m_lstViews.GetNext(pos);

while (pCurrentView)
{
   pCurrentView->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);
   pFrame->RecalcLayout();
   pCurrentView = (pos) ? m_lstViews.GetNext(pos) : NULL;
}

Any help would be great!

You have to call View's GetParentFrame  and hide that window instead of the view like...

CMainFrame * pFrame = (CMainFrame *)::AfxGetMainWnd();
POSITION pos = m_lstViews.GetHeadPosition();
CView * pCurrentView = m_lstViews.GetNext(pos);

while (pCurrentView)
{
  //pCurrentView->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);
  CFrameWnd *pFrameWnd = pCurrentView->GetParentFrame();
  pFrameWnd->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);

  pFrame->RecalcLayout();
  pCurrentView = (pos) ? m_lstViews.GetNext(pos) : NULL;
}


Good Luck
