If the hChildWindow parameter is NULL, the system activates the child window that is immediately before or after the currently active child window

 

If lHow is zero, the system activates the next MDI child window and places the child window identified by the hChildWindow parameter behind all other child windows.

If lHow is nonzero, the system activates the previous child window, placing it in front of the child window identified by hChildWindow.
