Remarks

When SetChildIndex is called, the Control referred to by the child parameter is moved to the position specified by newIndex and the other Control references in the Control.ControlCollection are reordered to accommodate the move. The control with an index value of zero is at the top of the z-order, and higher numbers are closer to the bottom.
