Revisiting Lock Screen

Thanks Mike.

I think I am going to have to come up with an alternative. Something like taking a snapshot of the window then overlaying it on the window while processing, then deleting it when done.

The trouble is I have other windows open that will update because they are synching with the module I am working in. Also this won’t improve performance the way Lock Screen would (should).

didn't you say your code was modifying a dg?
i see a couple of possible failure points:
* the widget could be doing something unexpected
* the dg could be unlocking the screen.
you could also try two or more lock screens. i believe lock screen is
additive. until idle.

Wow thanks for that! I think I remember now this came up before, and
datagrids were the culprit.

But that does seem odd, doesn’t it? Why would a screen lock interfere with
the datagrid behavior? (That is rhetorical. Only the devs would know that.)
