Understanding the Object Tree in Expression Blend
concept of layers
The parent-child relationship
The parent-child relationship between objects
is important because it defines the effects
of manipulating objects.
If you manipulate the properties of a parent Canvas, such as by moving its position on the artboard,
the same effect is applied to each of the object’s children.
However, if you manipulate the properties of a child object, the parent is not affected.
Animations are based on real time in seconds, minutes, and hours, and are not framebased.
