Yeah, in a program like Geany where it doesn't use Actions to make it
easy to control the multiple widgets that represent the same action,
it's certainly less trivial. That's why I said "Assuming re-writing more
of the code isn't actually a bad thing..." :) For example, if Geany was
made to use actions, you could disable closing and reloading as simple
as two calls like:
or some document-specific variation of that. In the case of my little
editor I was writing, I had the Qt actions and also the translucent
overlay (mentioned but not shown) which prevented the user from
interacting with the Scintilla view while locked.
