is there a better way of getting CMyView pointer on object created using RUNTIME_CLASS than the one in code snippet?

I would like to get the pointer pointing on CMyView object right after RUNTIME_CLASS call locally and not to use global variable.
//global variable
CMyView* g_pView;


//dynamic creation of CView derived class somewhere else


//CMyView constructor
   g_pView = this;
