Hello everyone,

I have a problem when I want to mask a grid panel the first time is loading.

I create a tab that has this grid and this page takes many minutes to load, so I want to apply the mask on it.
If I try to mask the tab, I can't obviously because it isn't completely created. I put the variable of the grid like this:

but it isn't work.

I post some code to help to solve my problem.

thank you very much for your time.

Looks like you are using GWT-Ext. Not having worked with GWT-Ext I cannot offer any suggestions for it.
However, you might want to consider GWT LazyPanel or something like a GlassPanel
I personally would prefer the LazyPanel as the glass panel will block all user interaction with the whole UI.

In future, while posting code, please UseCodeTags
I have edited out your original post this time. As you can see the code tags make the code much more readable and easy to understand.

The problem is that I work with 1.5 version of gwt and I can't update because of technical requirements, but thanks for the answer
