That's the long way around. Try this, assuming you want a button:
create btn "new button" in grp "mygroup" of cd "thatCard"
If you're on the same card, just:
create btn "new button" in grp "mygroup"
You can substitute any control for "button". No need to ungroup first,
just plunk it in there. I vaguely remember a discussion about this but I
can't remember why you weren't able to do it this way for some reason.
