Self Awareness?

Does a control receive any message when it is pasted onto a card?

I¹m trying to figure out a way for a control (usually a group) to
initialize some of its properties upon being pasted.  Things like
preOpenControl and openControl don¹t appear to work.  I know this can be
done with a frontScript, but I¹d prefer to detect a message in the control
itself, if there is one.

Thanks for any suggestions.
