Need to re-enable submit button at end of a Wizard control.

Experts,

I have a wizard control with a FINISH button at the end that I disable onClick to prevent multiple clicks.
 However, if the page fails validation, the button remains disabled and further attempts to submit a
corrected page is not possible.

The button is wrapped in a FinishedNavigationTemplate container:
<FinishNavigationTemplate>
  <asp:Button ID="FinishButton" runat="server" CommandName="MoveComplete" Text="Finish" />
</FinishNavigationTemplate>

The onclick javascript is added in the page load:
  Button myFinishButton = (Button)Wizard1.FindControl("FinishNavigationTemplateContainerID$FinishButton");
  string script = String.Format("{0}.disabled = true;{0}.value='Please wait...';", myFinishButton.ClientID);
  myFinishButton.OnClientClick = script;

I think I need to re-enable the button on every page load (postback or not), but also need it to re-enable if
 a field that failed validation is corrected.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

H.

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a multiple-click issue with ASP.Net or the wizard control; it's sort of taken care of for you, making this whole problem moot.  When you click the first time, the form submits and can't submit again until the page has finished loading.  By this time if validation has failed multiple clicks are safe, because nothing will happen when the form is re-submitted.

Like I said at first, though, I'm not 100% sure on that and you'll want to do some googling to verify this statement before relying on it.

jcoehoorn,

I removed the code I was using to disable the button & change the text onclick and tested it...

ASP.NET & the wizard control still allowed multiple clicks and I received multiple entries in the db.

Thanks though.

So I guess I'm back to the original problem...

1. Need to disable button to prevent multiple clicks (have code that handles this), also display different text on the button (also have code to handle this).

Item #1 may be moot.

2. Need the button to re-enable (and change text back) after page validation fails so it can be resubmitted.
