Display list, stage, addChild – ActionScript 3.0 and Flash CS3 tutorial (one of many on Flash&Math)

One of our readers let me know about a new site they have created that’s dedicated to Flash and math. You can find a whole bunch of excellent tutorials on using ActionScript 3.0 with Flash CS3. One such tutorial focuses on using the display hierarchy, the Stage, and depth management in ActionScript 3.0/Flash:

The types of display objects, the display hierarchy, and the depth management are very different in ActionScript 3 from the earlier versions of the language. In this tutorial, we talk about display objects, parent-child relationship, the Display List, and the mysterious Stage in AS3. We will illustrate the concepts using a simple example of an animated “solar system”.

And you can find it here: http://www.flashandmath.com/intermediate/children/index.html

But seriously – check out this site for a whole bunch more really useful tutorials on ActionScript 3.0 and Flash. It’s a great place to go if you’re new to and/or nervous about using or updating to AS3. Lots of samples, source files, code snippets, and hands-on steps to make things work.
