How to "kill" mouseTouches while waiting for an internet connection?

WelL,  I thought the same thing for a long time, but was reluctant to “impose” so dramatically on the User Interface. But I always envision a big ugly “cover”.

Ha! So transparency works….Good, we will try it.

Are you typically showing a loading msg or icon.

IN other context, I should a load in message and it tell the user he can click to discontinue loading. So that she can “gracefully” leave the internet connection and go back to the app…..

I always struggled with this. I ended up putting a fully transparent grc
covering everything (I call it a blanket) with 'on mouseUp' and 'on
mouseDown' set with nothing in them on the grc script. This catches any
stray touches I want to be ignored and allow the other processes to
complete. Then hide the blanket once the process is done.
MobileClearTouches was never reliable enough for me.

All the very best, BR
