Change the stack order of objects

With any two objects on the artboard in Microsoft® Expression Blend™, one object is always higher on the stack of objects than the other object. The top of the stack is the front-most object. When you insert an object into a document or layout panel, the object is automatically placed on top of other objects in the active container object. To change the order of objects, you can use the Order commands on the Object menu or drag the objects in the objects view under Objects and Timeline in the Interaction panel.

To change the stack order of objects

Tip You can also change the order of objects by using the Order commands when you right-click an object, or by using the keyboard shortcuts that appear on the Object menu under the Order context menu.
