ofxGui disable widgets

is it possible to disable ofxGui components?
I thought ofxBaseGui::unregisterMouseEvents() would do it. But it did not. At least I did not notice any difference.
I tried adding ringButton.unregisterMouseEvents(); to examples/gui/guiFromParametersExample/src/ofApp.cpp/setup

Any ideas?

when a widget is added to a panel or gui group, it’s events are disabled and it’s the parent the responsible for sending mouse… events to it, so no there’s no way right now to disable individual gui elements, you can only disable the whole panel. also if you stop drawing the panel then it’ll stop receiving events too

Okay, thanks for the explanation.
Are there any plans to add this functionality?
