init_options.on( 'csrf', function( ev, newVal, oldVal ){
console.log( newVal );
any reason why that wont work?
init_options comes from a model/ajax call

@chasenlehara What do mean with “point to its parent instance”? How would you implement this?

Guys what is the correct way to detect that I have compute, but not plain value (like string) ?
I was doing this:

    return === 'compute' ? prop() : prop;

But found out that there is no name in compute in IE11 at least.

@Lighttree use prop.isComputed
@gKreator are you asking about the connection? (You've shown init_options and InitOptions which may not be the same thing). Connections don't accept event bindings, to the best of my knowledge

Init_options is the result data, ill show more when i get home
The problem is i set the data twice and the on never fires, probably because im doing init_options = data; which doesnt trigger child property set events?

Right, that can't work because that's not setting a property, just setting a variable in context. if data is a set of properties to set on init_options, use init_options.set(data)

Has anyone ever had a issue, where somethign wasn't updating, and just by adding a "setter", that does nothing really:

filters: {
  set(newVal) {
    return newVal;

...somehow fixes it? I am baffled. If anyone has any ideas what coud cause this and why it is fixed by this please let me know what you think

Sounds like what's happening is you were using an unsealed DefineMap, you set a value that wasn't defined using =, and therefore no observation was added for the property.
once you set a setter, that included the definition at init time, and you get Observations then.

Actually we're using 2.3

@BigAB I don’t think I’ve ever seen that kind of issue before. I’m wondering if you can narrow it down to a small example.

Yeah, if I could do tht I would probably see the issue. I was just hoping for a hint in the right direction. Well, I'll let you know if I find anything, but I am sure it's probably similar to what Brad mentioned, somwhere is reading a value without attr or something so there is nothing being "observered" I'll bet.
