Default Make app wait

I have an app I'm making where the user presses a key and a series of events occur. The problem is that during these events I need to prevent the user from pressing another key. Is there a way to lock the program somehow until my events complete?

Start a separate thread to perform the processing, and put up a modal dialog, like "Processing...".

Thanks for the help. I figured it out a different way before I came back and saw your response. It was an audio file I was waiting for so I put a "do/while" loop in which did nothing while the player was in the started state. Don't know if it's the best way but it seems to work fine.

Bad idea - this will result in the OS dumping your code out as "unresponsive" when run on the device.

Thanks again, you are a wealth of knowledge. I think I need to figure out this thread thing obviously.
