Run action from within component when component becomes visible

I want to run an action when an component appears from within the component similar to the OnVisible of screens. 

I know I can us the OnReset, but I want a solution from within the component so that everyone can just drop in the component without needing to do other things. 


My current but not so elegant solution is to use an OnStart of a timer with AutoStart which is placed outside the visible area.

You have a function called Reset()

You can try that

Maybe more info is in order. I want to run a behavioural function in the component not outside (e.g. not screen OnVisible = Reset(Component)). 

A component internally doesn't seem to have something other then OnReset that I know of. However, a component cannot reset itself without another behavioural function, which is what I need in the first place. 


The only behavioural function that starts automatically in an component internally (that I've found) is a timer, but that sounds like bad practice to get an automatic behavioural function.

I was testing things, and it seems that using reset(parent) or reset(ComponentName) does not work when the component is imported from the component library. 

It does work on the screens of the component library where you can test things out.
