This would allow WorkItems to generically tell their Workspace that a SmartPart is busy/not. The particular implementation of IWorkspace could then visually represent the fact that the SmartPart is busy. Useful in async scenarios.

public interface ILSGWorkspace : IWorkspace {
void Busy(Control smartPart, bool busy);

A TabWorkspace implementation

public class LSGTabWorkspace : TabWorkspace, ILSGWorkspace {
public void Busy(Control smartPart, bool busy) {
string key = PagessmartPart.Name;
smartPart.Enabled = !busy;
this.ImageList = (busy) ? _util.LargeIcons : null;
TabPageskey.ImageKey = (busy) ? "running" : null;
TabPageskey.Cursor = (busy) ? Cursors.WaitCursor : Cursors.Default;
