Javascript Object to place within the Element Tree (web)

OutSystems UI

One can use Javascript in various ways within Outsystems. When using Javascript on the screen after a specific object you can use a webblock/Container or expression after the desired object. There are a few things that have to be done; 

- Use a webblock or container
- Using an Expression without any syntax checks
- Adjust the style = "display: none;"

I think it could be helpful to create a some sort of placeholder object that can be used in the element tree at the desired place of the screen. This placeholder should automatically have the 'Style' with "display: none;". Besides it would be nice when there would be a syntax check. 

It would also be great when the space on the screen would not be filled with this object. Maybe there should be some sort of an icon that shows that there is a Javascript on that specific part of the screen, but not really a block or container that basically changes the screen when developing.
