Databinding and visibility (Winforms)

Am I right in thinking that databinding only really takes effect when a
control is made visible? The reason I ask is that the application I'm
working on consists of a collection of Panels, each of which shows
nothing but a "please wait" message until the business service it
depends on returns. When it has returned it fills in the panel's
controls, and they each make a note of their initial values (so that
the form can tell if any controls have changed and insist that they be
either saved or cancelled).

However, because they aren't visible at the point when they save their
initial values, the databinding hasn't actually kicked in yet, so the
wrong initial values get stored.

Is there any way to force the databinding to occur, or am I going to
have to kludge it?

Cheers,

Andy D
