Hello, Get[] can load any file that was created with Save so you should be able to include Script[ Get["someSaveFile"]] within your GUIKit definition to load any data saved out with Save, or even a Script source file that is written not to include semi-colon lines. Perhaps you are talking about the actual content of an external Script file? If you could forward me a specific example I can investigate where we might be able to improve the current functionality.
