    Preventing user interaction.

    Ugo Ducharme

      Is there a way to momentarly prevent user interaction with the application while the application is waiting something from an appServer? Take this scenario for example:


      1- The user enters a SKU in a text field.

      2- The user changes focus

      3- The application fetches the part information based on the entered SKU.

      4- The user should not be able to do anything until the part information is completly fetched.

      5- The application obtains the desired information and update de screen with it.

      6- The user regain the ability to interact qith the application.


      Is there a way to do it that does not feels like a hack (having an invisible modal dialog do feels like an hack)
