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?

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.
I agree. Here's the link:
