Code Snippet:

Method 1: On Added handler
addEventListener( Event.ADDED_TO_STAGE, function( e:Event ):void
stage.addEventListener( MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, myMouseMoveEvent );

Method 2: The system manager parents all displayable elements within the Flex application.
systemManager.stage.addEventListener( MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, myMouseMoveEvent );
