Alright, I actually emailed someone at /n software support about 
this, and got a fairly prompt and helpful reply, which I'll quote in 
part for the benefit of the group:

So, it sounds like my notion about using a property was on target, 
and that the 'ok' property isn't listed in the regular documentation.
