where does "startup" message go when in IDE

I've found the startup message, to be sent to the first stack opened.

It seems useful, but I haven't been able to trap it in the IDE.

In particular, I found an incantation to hide the stack or some such for
use at the command line.

Is it going to an IDE card?  Could I simulate it with a

if the environment is "development" then

dispatch "startup" to me

end if

as the first item of preOpenStack of the main stack (hmm, I suppose in
beforePreOpenStack . . .)
