Default button no longer default after disable then enable

Posted on 2011-03-02

My web page has a default button. The button disables itself after a click to prevent duplicate clicks. If the processing fails it enables again to allow a retry but the button no longer behaves like the default button (i.e. I can't press the enter key to activate it) after it has been enabled again. Is there a way to make it the default button again after being re-enabled?

In the form tag you can just set the default:

<form DefaultFocus ="TextBox1" runat ="server">
