Yo! :-)

repeat with i = 1 to the num of controls on cd 1 of stack xyz
     set the selected of control i of cd 1 of stack xyz to true
end repeat
set the backgroundbehaviour of the templategroup to true
## set the short name of the templategroup to "my group"
## etc...
select emtpy
reset the templategroup ## optional

Hope that helps.
