And what we're going to want to do is in this …case, we'll set this up to listen for mouse events. …Specifically, click events from a mouse. And based upon the x and y position of …the cursor, what we'll do is trace out those numbers in the Console window.…

When we refer to the stage in …ActionScript, we're talking about basically the visible area that you can …see when you run a SWF or an AIR file or something like that. …It's your, your visible workspace. So, here we'll say stage.addEventListener.…
So, what type of event listener? You can see here that there is all sorts …of different events that we can use, and you can pick any one you want. …In this case, again we're going to use MouseEvent.CLICK to detect mouse clicks. …
