BusyGrid inherits the functionality of Grid. It also includes properties such as:

IsBusy – Gets or sets a value that indicates whether is BusyGrid in busy mode
GlassBrush – Gets or sets a Brush for glass
GlassOpacity – Gets or sets an opacity value of glass

To use BusyGrid control in your application, follow these steps:

1. Declare namespace in xaml file like this:
xmlns:controls=”clr-namespace:BlogArvixeCom.UserNT.BusyGrid.Controls”
2. Replace Grid to controls:BusyGrid
3. Set IsBusy property to True to lock content (default value False)
4. Set GlassBrush property (default value Gray)
5. Set GlassOpacity property (default value 0.3)
