Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Handle the newField message if you want to create additional objects, switch tools, or do other tasks when a new field is created.

Comments:

Normally, the newField message is handled at a higher level of the message path, since the newly-created field does not yet have a script unless the templateField contains one.

The actual creation is not triggered by the newField message, so trapping the message and not allowing it to pass does not prevent the field from being created.
