hello experts,

Here is a very simple Flex code.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="" layout="absolute" creationComplete="init()">
		import mx.controls.Alert;
		private function init():void {
			red.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK , clicked);
			green.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK , clicked);
			blue.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK , clicked);
		private function clicked(e:MouseEvent):void {" clicked");
		<mx:Canvas x="31" y="46" width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="#FF0000" id="red"  />
		<mx:Canvas x="31" y="46" width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="#00FF00"  id="green" />
		<mx:Canvas x="31" y="46" width="200" height="200" backgroundColor="#0000FF"  id="blue" />

What I try to achieve is to make red or green clickable.
It is important not to change the layout (no nesting canvas).
I can do it if I make blue visible = false, but I need to keep all layers visible !
It doesn't work if you remove the listener from blue neither.

So how to make the others layers answer the events ?
