I have click event for submit button that works just fine.
Now, I want to prevent double clicking of that button.

Please suggest what I need to write in the click event to disable the button as soon as the button is clicked for the first time.

you just need to add a field to be a counter.
Increment it on click as well and then put a condition that click is less than 1 to execute.

Actually, I am not very much familiar with the Infopath object model.
So, can you please tell what is the code I need to add.

        public void button_ID_Clicked(object sender, ClickedEventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                // My code is here.
               // ?? what I need to add here in order to disable and hide the button the button.
                }              
            }
           
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                ex.Message.ToString();
            }
         
        }

I don't use code, just InfoPath rules but this should be pretty basic.
Define another number field in your main data source.
Set it to 0 by default
Put a if statement at the begining of your code that if field greater than 0 exit
else your code and at the end set field to 1

Thanks Clayfox. But, this is not what I actually want.
I want to enable and unhide the button as soon as I enter the click event.
And, want to disable and hide the button as soon as I leave the click event.

I used
this.Enabled = false

But, it is giving some syntax error
