The generated Build() function shows all widgets prior to attaching any signals to the widgets. As such an "onShow" function will not be triggered if added using the designer.

With what GUI toolkit does this happen?

Please provide a simple test case.

If this is Gtk, this is just a side effect of using the designer.

This is GTK. I was aware this was a side effect of using the designer; I would still consider it a bug though? (Sorry if I'm being dense)
