Controls - Do you disable buttons that are unavailable?
  v1.0 Posted at 27/11/2012 8:11 PM by Rebecca Liu
If a button is unavailable, or clicking it will generate an error message or should have no effect, then the button should be disabled. However, buttons should not be hidden simply because they are unavailable as it confuses the user.
