Mmm... I understand, but since I need to use callbacks on "handler" 
events, I think it's simpler to create my control the way I already did 
it.  I won't go any further in this example.

I still agree with automatic controls and handlers 
activation/deactivation.  Attached an new patch with the simple changes 
needed.  Is it ok ?  If it is, I'll open a ticket.

Again, many thanks for your help,
