I'd like to, instead of having a modal window popup... block all events to a div containing navigation while a form is being displayed. The form is dynamically displayed. I want it so when the form is being displayed... the user can't even select text or click links in the nav div. It be great to then darken the disabled divs with some kind of alpha-mask.
It's exactly like what a modal window does, but instead of blocking the entire window, just certain sections are blocked.
Does anyone know how to block an element from getting access to events?
