How to wait for a slice to be ready?

What is the proper way to wait for a slice to be ready to accept property modifications after I've created it?  

Waiting for the slice created event doesn't seem to be enough. I tried putting a set slice.freq command in the event, but it doesn't work.   But if I wait some time and then change the slice's frequency it will do it. 

Obviously there is some other event, besides slice created, a or property I have to monitor before I start making demands of the slice.  What is it?

    Here is a snippet of how I do that in CAT:

    public void SliceAdded(Slice slc) {  switch (slc.Index)  {   case 0:    if (slice0 == null)    {     slice0 = slc;     slice0.PropertyChanged += new PropertyChangedEventHandler(slice0_PropertyChanged);     slice0.SMeterDataReady += new Slice.SMeterDataReadyEventHandler(slice0_SMeterDataReady);     //initialize the current_receive_slice     if (current_receive_slice == null)      {      current_receive_slice = slice0;       Set("Freq0", slice0.Freq.ToString());      }                         string split_status = "00";                       if (slice0 != null && slice1 == null && slice0.Transmit)                        {                           split_status = "00";                           this.CurrentTransmitSlice = 0;                        } 

    The SliceAdded(Slice slc) method is called from the radio slice_added event handler. 

    Hope this helps,
