How do you disable a button? "'Mark' via fltk.general" 03:38 Jan 13 top right image
I have a "history" menubutton that I want to enable when the menu has items and disable when it doesn't. It will start out with no entries and gradually they'll be added depending on what the user does. Similarly, I have other buttons which should be enabled/disabled depending on context.

I've tried setting the trigger to none but that didn't do it. I also tried calling deactivate but that didn't stop clicking it from working.

Searching for 'enable' and 'disable' in the docs didn't help.

So maybe fltk has a way of doing this using terminology/functions I'm unfamiliar with? (I'm pretty new to fltk; I'm much more familiar with Tk, Qt, and wxWidgets.)
