Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Handle the newGroup message if you want to create objects or do other tasks when a new group is created.

Comments:

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

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

A newBackground message is sent after the newGroup message. (The newBackground message is included for compatibility with HyperCard.)
