I have a .net 2.0 form that disables the submit button after clicked.  THis works just fine:

btnSubmit.Attributes.Add("onClick", "javascript:document.getElementById('" + btnSubmit.ClientID + "').value='Please wait...'; javascript:document.getElementById('" + btnSubmit.ClientID + "').disabled = true;")

However, I have validation controls being used also.  If the page is not valid, the button is still disbaled.  How do I keep the button enabled if the page is not valid?  I have tried the following:

If Page.IsValid Then
            '//processing here
            btnSubmit.Text = "Continue Mortgage Application"
            btnSubmit.Enabled = True
        End If

which does not seem to be working
