    What is "stacking order?"
    • A. 

      It is the order in which Flash executes actionscript. Listeners are run first in order to "catch" any events that may occur so that all functions may run correctly without causing any TypeErrors.

    • B. 

      It is the order in which Flash renders a scene - elements are stacked within layers and layers are stacked with the movie. Shapes fall to the "bottom" of the stack within a layer, allowing for symbols and text objects to "rise to the top." Likewise, layers at the "top" of the "stack" of layers in the timeline will be rendered first - being more visible - and those at the bottom will be obscured by any content in layers above it.
