Question on margin calls

Im hoping someone can answer a quick question on margin calls. Im aware that a margin account is needed to short shares, but when I enter an order it gives me an option to choose between cash and margin. Can I still receive a margin call using cash in my margin account? For example if I have 100% of my cash in a short position and the stock more than doubles what happens?
