What does relayering of a card entail and for what purpose?
Sorry this only my second day on the course!

Hi Vince,

the layer allows you to specify the order in which controls and cards are displayed on the screen.
This is needed, for example, when controls overlap and you want to specify which one of the controls is visible on top and which one is below.

Kind Regards,
