How to Bound Each Output Figure

Does anyone know if it is possible to close all output figures while closing any of them once?
At the moment I am using this:
set(h2, 'HandleVisibility', 'off');
uiwait(msgbox('Click OK to close all '));
close all;
set(h2, 'HandleVisibility', 'on');
This works as automatically asking to close all dialogs. I need it without dialog box and with normal clicking on X at the upper left of a figure.

You can set the 'DeleteFcn' of a figure to be any function handle you want so you can put 'Close All' in this if you want or keep track of a bunch of figure handles that it should close.
It's hard to think of a scenario in which automatically closing any figure which happens to be open, when you close one, is a good idea, rather than having kept track of specific figure handles in an array, which you want to be closed in such a case.

I agree with Adam: this sounds like the GUI equivalent of putting clear, clc, and close at the top of every script. Rather than indiscriminately closing everything, keeping track of the figures in the first place would be a much better idea: this is exactly what graphics handles are for!
