Cardinal - Value for the data type after incrementing.

Increment is an overloaded Cardinal function used to increase the value of the thread-safe Cardial data type by the amount indicated in AValue. 

Increment calls Lock to enable the resource protection capabilities of the object instance prior to updating the associated value for the data type. Increment calls Unlock to disable resource protection when the value is successfully updated, or an exception is raised. 

Use Decrement to decrease the value of the thread-safe Cardinal data type.
