I understand that SetProp and GetProp handlers are messages and if Lock
messages is on then these will not work.  But clearly people use GetProp
and SetProp handlers. I see them used a lot in CustomControls. I assume the
DataGrid uses them when you "set dgData of "….

So I am looking for clarification. When is it bad idea to use GetProp and
SetProp handlers?
