Freezing page content with javascript

Hi guys, I was implementing functionality in which I need to use widget 'Geolocation for PhoneGap'. I need to implement functionality which is triggered when I click on this widget and it's connected with creating the progress bar and freezing page content until the microflow (which is called by that widget) finishes his workflow. I know that this functionality is implemented within standard Mendix button, but because this widget don't have this option I need to use java script inside this widget. I figured out about the functions  'mx.ui.showProgress()' and 'mx.ui.hideProgress()' which will show and hide progress bar. Now what I need is the function (java scrpit) which will freeze the page content until the workflow of this microflow is finished. Do you have any advice how I could do that? Thanks in advance, Kind regards, Aleksandar

@Aleksandar you want to have a blocking progress bar to do this. What type of functionality is triggered that in turn triggers the progress bar?

To show an underlay (block content):;

To hide it again (release block of content):;

Hope this helps.
If you need help changing the widget to add the code to the correct locations just let me know.

Never done this yet, but can you fork the widget and add event-handling to it? Event-handling will allow you to set the 'on enter settings' to respond like you described.
