Arranges all the MDI child windows in a cascade format.

void MDICascade( ); 
void MDICascade( 
   int nType  


Specifies a cascade flag. Only the following flag can be specified: MDITILE_SKIPDISABLED, which prevents disabled MDI child windows from being cascaded.

The first version of MDICascade, with no parameters, cascades all MDI child windows, including disabled ones. The second version optionally does not cascade disabled MDI child windows if you specify MDITILE_SKIPDISABLED for the nType parameter.
