DisplayObject

The display classes are the classes behind every visual item in Adobe Flash, and the DisplayObject is the superclass of all display classes. All display classes inherit the DisplayObject properties, methods, and events.

As the superclass of the display architecture, the DisplayObject defines basic visual properties, methods, and events that all visual items have in common—for example, the x, y, width, and height properties. Visual items added to the stage within the Flash IDE, such as movie clip, button symbols, or even text fields, automatically inherit the common DisplayObject properties, methods, and events. Therefore, you can access the inherited properties, methods, and events without having to extend any ActionScript packages or classes.
