There s no way of getting masking div to change its opacity.

var mask = new Ext.LoadMask(Ext.getCmp('component_id').body, {msg:"something..."});

mask has no id. mask.el has DIFFERENT id than the actual div containing message! (actualy i want to access mask not message but nevertheless).

Needles to say it is very unwise that there is no normal way of accessing mask itself.

I WANT TO CHANGE OPACITY OF ONE PARTICULAR MASK (not css of all masks) - and with this library its IMPOSSIBLE! i cant even get element. i would gladly use pure javascript but i cant even get ID of that div. IT SUCKS.
