Hi all,

Is there currently any way to enable / disable UI elements from Lua?

Thanks in advance

Hi SP,

I was hoping to actually be able to keep the button visible, but just disable it.

Not a biggie though as I can work around it in code (i.e. by using a Boolean to tell if it's meant to be disabled or not).
