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

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

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

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

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

Another possibility is to set Enabled = false on the submit button, assuming the submit button is a server-side button control.  Do this on it's click event.

private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
     // code for whatever needs to be accomplished when the button is clicked.
     ... code here.

     // disable this button once the code has executed.
     Button1.Enabled = false;      
}

Hi jnhorst,
      Sorry to point this out, but your solution won't work. The button_click() event is raised on the server, if the page takes time to submit, there is no way the button can be disabled . It has to be done on the client side, as tovvenki has suggested.

Hendry,
   You can do it the old way, too --

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>MyTitle</title>
<script language="javascript">
function disableButton(this)
{

this.disabled = true;
this.submit();
}              
</script>
</HEAD>

!------********-------- Decare the button-------********-------------

<input type=submit onclick="disablebutton(this)">
