How do you mark a Lead converted on record.js ?

Hello there !

What i want :

On Pro 7.5.2

For a client, when a user clicks on a custom button in a Leads' record, it calls an external API.
So, basically, i want that, if the api call is successful and we don't get any errors, i want to disable  editing on the Leads' record, and i want to mark it as "converted". (aka, get the convert button to turn green, and save the fact that the lead has been converted into the databases)

What i did :
I've managed to do this with the'GET', app.api.buildURL('myCustomEndPoint/myCustomMethod/'+this.model.get('id')), null, { 
    success: function(date) {
        var acls = app.user.getAcls();
        acls.Leads.edit = 'no'; 
        app.user.set("acls", acls);
        /*$('[name="edit_button"]').hide(); */

Where i am stuck :

For the "disable edit" part,  i tried to change the ACL on it -as you can see, but it does not seem to work. Do you have any idea on this?
But, well, this is not the most important question i have (really, because i can hide the "edit" button if i want to).

The most important question here is :

- How to mark the lead as Converted ? Aka : Being on record.js, how can i fill the database column "converted" with 1, and render the green button saying "Converted"

As you can see, i've tried with


but in the Firebug Console, it says that "this" is undefined, so i tried with declaring self = this before the api call. But it does not work either.

I would like it to change from 0 to 1 and to be saved in databases...

Thanks a lot for the ideas and the tips !
