hmm, i don't really understand your question.
a) use the properties-dialog, save the patch, re-open it, and everything 
should be initialized (probably you will have to activate the 
"init"-button in the properties, to make toggle send it's value out like 
a loadbang); i guess that is the wrong answer and you know this already.

b) use a textfile editor as frank suggested, but i guess this isn't it 
either, as you can only do offline initialization like with the 
properties dialog; while i have used this a lot (with scripting) it is 
certainly not a very convenient way, and nowadays i would do it differently.

c) you can send messages to the toggle that controls all of it's 
features; everything is documented in doc/5.references/help-toggle.pd 
(there is a subpatch [pd edit] that shows quite everything)
