Can't you trap the mainstackChanged message in a frontScript? I'm doing some GIT IDE integration stuff related to lcVCS and I've been enjoying creating behaviors for IDE objects... in particular grandparent behaviors for the SE template behaviors... mouseMove toolTip git blame on on the line numbers is my favorite but the sheet dialog showing the log and script diff when you click on a log line is shaping up nicely ;-)


So you could set a behavior on revFrontScript

before mainstackChanged pOldStack, pNewStack
 -- whatever you need here
end mainstackChanged
