In my case it's already visible (and it's not really being used as a pick list in the traditional sense) - it's a scrolling list of items on the left side of the iPad screen that the user can search and select (see 

The user enters search terms into the native text control above the data grid and it does a dynamic live search for records that match the entered text.

If I needed to hide and show it and to disable all the other controls I might group all the elements with a full screen rectangle graphic at the back of the group and make the rectangle opaque but set it's blend to 100 - that way touches anywhere behind the group wouldn't get through.
