Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the number property to find out what layer a card is on, to find or change a card's position, or to refer to an object.

Value:

The number of an object is a non-negative integer.

For all objects except cards, the number property is read-only and cannot be set.

Comments:

The number of a control is its layer on the card. Lower numbers are further back; higher numbers are farther forward. If you create several controls and don't change their layer order, the first control you created has the number 1 and the rest of the controls are numbered in the order of creation.

The number of a card specifies its position in the stack. When you open a stack without specifying a card, the card whose number is one appears first. Setting the number of a card moves it to the specified position in the stack. (Cards are the only objects whose number property can be set.)

The number of a main stack is always zero. The number of a substack is its creation order in the file, from 1 to the number of substacks.

You can refer to any object by specifying its number.
