Recreating complex interfaces and/or field formatting on preOpenCard

Seems counterintuitive doesn't it? Do some stuff on a card before ever opening it? It's like saying drive to the store and get some milk before unlocking the driver side door. ;-) 

Usually with a preOpenCard handler, if I want to hide what I am doing from my user, I just lock the screen or hide the stack, and then handle everything else in an openCard handler, but that is just my preference.
