anyone know a way to disable all the screens elements in a single line?
I know that we can do it in a loop but is there a way to disable all the elements by writing just one line and without using the loop?
something like document.all.disabled = true

Life called,so here I am.<br />Cheers<br />Niki.:-)

No, but you might be able to fake it by creating a floating transparent div over the whole screen that eats all the events.
