Ordering layers of objects
Ordering refers to the relative position of the virtual layers that are created when the boundaries of two or more objects overlap. To make one object appear to be in front of another, you move it forward. To make it appear to be behind the overlapping object, you move it back.
To order objects:
1. Select one or more objects on the form.
2. Select Design > Order and choose Send to Back or Bring to Front.
