Hi Devin...

Thanks for the reply.. I have not explained what I want to do too well. What I would like to be able to do is set the 'geometry' in the geometry pane that are in the objects' inspector.... so, if I create a field by script, I can also set its geometry in the geometry pane...

Is it now a little clearer than mud ?

There are many properties that can be set, like height, width, rectangle, left, right, etc. Usually after you've set them by script you have to force the property inspector to update itself before the new settings are shown. For example, you could close and reopen the inspector, or switch to another pane of the inspector then switch back.
