I don't know that you need to close down the window. What about setting the
dgData and dgColumns to empty so that the user can't interact with it while
updating? Or overlay a semi-transparent graphic over the top that eats
mouse events? Since you are upgrading to 9.0.2 you could also use the
Spinner widget placed in the middle of the Data Grid to show that you are
crunching some data.
