Hey Vik,

I use that all the time, great for overriding the build in properties or
to add your own however the thing that I miss is a right click on that
method and do a "add property to the property manager" option so that
when you use that window as a subwindow, you can set default values from
those properties in the property editor when selecting the subwindow
field on another window.
