[PyQt] Block for interactions

I have a widget with a start button. When the start button is pressed 
the cursor changes to a WaitCursor (hour-glass shaped cursor). In the 
same instant, I want all user-interaction with the widget to be blocked. 
That is, the widget should change to the same state it has when being 
blocked by a modal dialog.

Is this just calling setEnabled(False) or is there some more specific 
method? A blocked widget look different from a disabled widget.

Best regards,
