Please do note that enabled controls can gain focus upon click. Therefore do not enable background controls or else they will cover any controls on top of them.
As a general rule of thumb, enabled controls should only be already on the top of the GUI.

One can disable a control when it is loaded by using ctrlEnable in the onLoad event handler.
class MyDialog
{
	class MyControl
	{
		onLoad = "(_this # 0) ctrlEnable false;";
	};
};
