object.CascadeWindowAtStartup = Value

Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) what happens if you open a new Reflection window when an existing Reflection window occupies the same size and position. When you open a settings file in which this property is True, new windows always cascade so that existing windows remain visible.

Note: This property is only relevant when you are opening settings files in which SaveWindowPosition is True (default). Reflection always cascades new windows when you open new untitled sessions, or when you open settings files in which SaveWindowPosition is False. When SaveWindowPosition is True and CascadeWindowAtStartup is False, new windows always open using the saved size and position, covering any existing windows in the same location. When both SaveWindowPosition and CascadeWindowAtStartup are True, new windows retain their saved size, but Reflection ignores the saved position and cascades the new windows if necessary.


The default value is False.
