Hi Patrick,

The only way I know of to disable a block is to disconnect its inputs
and outputs from the rest of the graph. GRC can not do that so you
will have to edit the python code. You have to suspend execution
during reconfiguration:
I usually do:

B1 will be disconnected but will still exist and you can use it again later.

If you want to disable a whole branch with several blocks, I think you
will have to break all connections within the branch and not just he
input/output of the branch (I am not sure about this though). You can
of course put the branch in a hier block in which case you only have
to disconnect one block.
