loadStack message use cases

Hi monte

I'm sure we would find a use case for it as we have/had that in visual foxpro where each container form or control object had an init event which allowed setting Clours and code dynamically on creation ... Very powerful
If your in the system how about adding an. Init event as per the docs below from the vfp documentation
For form sets and other container objects, the Init events for all the contained objects are triggered before the container's Init event, so you can access the contained objects within the container's Init event. The Init event for each contained object occurs in the order it was added to the container object.
To prevent a control from being created, return false (.F.) from the Init event. The Destroy event will not be triggered. For example, the following code returns false (.F.) if the Invoice table is not available:"
I would be able to then be able to create  in effect a data binding system with much less code simulating the data environment of vfp on creation/init of the stack if it doesn't slow things down too much just put it in ... Simples! 😀
I have programmed round it so far but it would be a brilliant addition
