Very true. Program hardening is not avoided in any development.

I don't do much View programming now, but when I do it would be great to see examples or a How-to. ^_^

Sounds complex... Thinking further about Anton's (Gabriele's) trick: Maybe the following could work: - Set button text to gray - Set feel to none at beginning of action block - Process actions - Reset feel to accept button clicks - Reset button text to original color Maybe this would not stop events from building in queue though. ~D
