Disabling action on a page



I have few buttons in my page, when user clicks on one of them I do few asynchronous operations, unless my call returns I want to disable all the action on that page... is there a way to achieve this.?

Controls have 'enabled' property:


Container has methods for iterating all it's controls if you need to disable a group of them.


ActionItems can be disabled as well. Access them using Page's actions property or actionCount()/actionAt() methods:



A better option might be showing a custom dialog during the operation. Please check this thread:

You can also add and remove ActionItem using JavaScript.
