I'm interested in exploring Flex, but I don't want to spend
unnecessary time on it. I'm wondering if it is possible to have
multiple "layers" (say a foreground, mid-ground, and background)
within a Flex application. In my particular case, I'd like to have
some type of animated Flash running in the "background" of the
application that is always visible. However, when the user
interacts with this application, is it possible to make visible
Flex components that exist in the "foreground" or "mid-ground"
appear "above" it? Or, to say, they come become visible in front of
the "background layer" when the user clicks a button (i.e. a user
clicks a button in the flash movie and a Flex form, perhaps for a
login or something, appears before them in the "foreground").
As a newbie to Flex I'll appreciate any help.
