the number of <object>
Applies to all objects, backgrounds, cards
The read-only number property is used to retrieve the number of a particular object. For all objects other than cards, backgrounds, and stacks, the number property refers to the object's position in the layer order relative to all other objects of the same type in the same layer. Objects closer to the back have lower numbers; objects nearer to the front have higher numbers.
For cards and backgrounds, the number property refers to the object's position in the stack relative to other cards or backgrounds in sequential order (i.e., the order followed when navigating to the next or previous cards).
