just wondering how you can change the z-index of an object, that is either bring it to the front or move it down a layer etc.
Application.application.curTextArea.parent.setChildIndex(Application.application.curTextAr ea, Application.application.curTextArea.parent.numChildren-1);
You can use the swapChildren methods:
Additionally, one of the more recent Flex 3 releases introduced a z property:
But, I've never used it, though.
If you just want to bring something to the front I have used addChild. Hope this helps.
