Hi everyone,

Is there a good way to temporarily disable my other map.on("click") events when one of the functions of the dijit measure widget is active? 

The default behavior of my application is to do an identify on click, and I've got some marquee select tools working in conjunction with the draw toolbar, but for some reason when the measure area tool is active, for example, it tries to fire my identify at the same time, which cancels out of the measure tool. 

Is it possible to assign a map.on event to a variable and set it to false? I also noticed there's no measure-start event on the widget.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
