setProp handlers

Hi Devin,

The properties inspector seems to lock messages before setting 
properties. This also applies to e.g. setting the width and height of a 
control. If it didn't do this, the properties inspector would probably 
become unusable because we'd have to switch message on and off all the 
time and when we'd forget to do that, we might mess up our interface or 
worse. It is probably a very good thing that the properties inspector 
doesn't trigger setProp and getProp handlers.

Best regards,
