Is there a Script Trigger to do something when you first load a layout?

Is there a Script Trigger to do something when you first load a layout? I saw a reference to an "OnLayoutLoad" on an old (2010) Claris Community post. Is this something that has disappeared in the many updates since then?
As a layout is first opened, I want to check to see if some JSON data is available and if it isn't call the script to create it.

Thank you. Had family in town, couldn't get back immediately. The problem was, as I like to put it, between the keyboard and the chair. My script was calling for another layout to be opened, and FM was putting that layout on top of the original. The second layout was opened previously, so it looked like the layout was just changing. I have set up the line to open up the second layout so that the layout is opened off-screen.

Thanks for your help!!
