I am disabling a panel in my script using both setDisabled(true) and disable() function. When i disable the panel, it gets disabled in all the browsers. In firefox, chrome and IE9, the panel gets disabled and fades a bit so that the data in the panel is visible to the user. But in IE8, the panel data is not at all visible and it gets blacked out. I want it to behave similar to other browsers. I am using 4.0.5 and i cant upgrade to newer version. Please suggest.
