[Help] How to start application in a given desktop?

I can see the misunderstanding.

Let me try to explain.

In CDE, if we want to start xterm in workspace Two, we can do
xterm -xrm "*workspaceList: Two"

In CDE, if we want to start a tcl/tk window in workspace Two, we can 
call the proc below:
proc myToplevel {winName} {
toplevel $winName
wm command $winName {"" "-xrm" "*workspaceList: Two"}

You can see the resource string we pass to executable xterm is the same 
with that we pass to a tcl/tk window.

So my question:

Is there such a resource string in KDE?

Best Regards
