Yes, most gui frameworks support enabling and disabling controls. In 
Tkinter, you use the 'state' option:

 >>> from Tkinter import *
 >>> b=Button(text='ok')
 >>> b.pack()
 >>> b.cget('state')
# Normal button state

 >>> b.config(state=DISABLED)
# button draws greyed out and doesn't respond to events

 >>> b.config(state=NORMAL)
# back to normal
