I need to set up loadMask for OpenLayers.Control.GetFeature. I know i should hide the mask on featureselected event or on protocol callback but when should i show the mask?

Here is code (assume i have _mask global variable with show and hide methods):

var selectionControl = new OpenLayers.Control.GetFeature({
            protocol: this.map.layerUtils.createWFSProtocol({featureType:featureType, srsName:'EPSG:'+ this.map.projectionCode}),
            box: true,
            toggleKey: "ctrlKey"

selectionControl.events.register("featureselected", this, function(e) {
