    application of the useCapture parameter

    NickTheNameless Level 1
      so with the help of David Stiller and LiveDocs, i am coming to an understanding of how buttons work in as3. i've discovered the useCapture parameter of addEventListener and while it makes sense, i am afraid i am missing something because i can't see any use for it. could someone give me an example how the ability to pass events to the parent node of the target, both before and after they are passed to the target, is useful? how can this new event flow be applied?
