Blocking Component Input

Is it possible to block input to components in a JDialog using a glass pane? If not, other than disabling the components, is there any other way to block input?
Thanks.

Sorry for this late reply. I was able to find and fully integrate the required class in the JDialog, and it saves alot of work with setEnabled() for every component. Thanks for the link.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
