Hi There,

I am wondering how I can disable the form button after it has been clicked, currently I am using the "onclick" event for the actual function I need to insert records. Has anyone got any good ideas about where I can place the function call?

Sean

onClick="Insertlisting_Click"

onclick="disableform()"

function disableform()
{

document.forms[0].SubmitButtton.disabled = true;
document.forms[0].SubmitButtton.value = 'Please wait...';
document.forms[0].submit();
}

Hi,

you have to do it by javascript, not in the code behind
to that you have to use

SubmitButton.Attributes.Add("onclick", "disableform()")

Hi There,

I'm not too sure where I have to place the code, do I just add it into the button control itself like below?

Sean

<asp:button id="btnSubmit" text="place listing"  onClick="Insertlisting_Click"  SubmitButton.Attributes.Add "onclick", "disableform()") runat="server" EnableViewState="False" />

nope, sorry that i've not been so clear
you have to place this code in the Page_load event

using the
SubmitButton.Attributes.Add("onclick", "disableform()")
the .net framework will assing the client event for this button and when you press the button it will try to call disableform function on the client

you have to assign the page_load event to the page ( this is done autmatically except if you write the definition by hand

Hi,
try this
in the .cs file(the code behind file)
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

      btnSubmit.Attributes.Add("OnClick","javascript:disableform();");
}

in the aspx file write this
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>MyTitle</title>
<script language="javascript">
function disableform()
{

document.forms[0].SubmitButtton.disabled = true;
document.forms[0].SubmitButtton.value = 'Please wait...';
document.forms[0].submit();
}                  
</script>
</HEAD>

if you still have problem with this technique then have a look at this article

Hi Venki,

The function seems to overide the validation I have on the page, do I need to call the required field validator that I have on the page inside this javascript fucntion?

Hi,
I don't thinkk it will override the validation, I think the validation fires first, then the onClick I am not sure in this I need to check that.

Put this in the page load and you can re-enable whenever you need.

If page.ispostback Then
Mybutton.visibile = false
End If
