Hi there,
How can I disable a button for 30 minutes once it has been clicked?
I want the user to be able to click a button ( It runs code, adds record etc), I then want to deactivate the button for a period of 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes are up, I need to re-activate the button.
I presume it's with the timer event, but I have tried for the past three hours to no avail.
As always, your time and advice is much appreciated.
