My understanding is that Dialogs.Load() scans `*.Dlg' (meta?) file for module names, reading further some static and dynamic data.

PROCEDURE LoadP (p: Panel; VAR r: Files.Rider);
	(** reads the panel from rider r *)
	WHILE V{elements-count} > 0 DO
		P{Get Module Name} 
		P{Load Name}
		P{Init Module with Dlg data} 
	END ;

For loading part, it does some magic with `Types'
Types.NewObj (o, Types.This (Modules.ThisMod (module), name)); ASSERT (o # NIL);

Could be it recoded to something like this?
Modules.Load(name, dlgItem);
Modules.ThisCommand(dlgItem, "Init()");

Many thanks and apologies for asking too much.
