Is it possible to disable an ImageButton when processing?

I found a way to disable a Button when processing doing this:

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then

           Dim strProcessScript As String = "this.value='Processing...';this.disabled=true;"
           btnProcess.Attributes.Add("onclick", (strProcessScript + ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(btnProcess, "").ToString))

        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window

But I can't do the same for an ImageButton

Try same thing for image button, only change the following...


imagebtnidhere.Attributes.Add("onclick", (ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(btnProcess, "").ToString) + ";return false;")


This will result in even you click on image button, nothing will happen.

But remember to remove that "return false;" when processing is done.

hi.. you can disable button like this
Write this code in button clicked event. It is for disable button for some time.

Javascript :
<script type="text/javascript">
Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_beginRequest(BeginRequestHandler);
function BeginRequestHandler(sender, args) {
document.getElementById('<%= lblMessage.ClientID %>').innerText = "Please Wait...";
document.getElementById('<%= btnSubmit.ClientID %>').innerText = "Please Wait";
args.get_postBackElement().disabled = true;
}
</script>

Code behind :

protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(4000);
lblMessage.Text = "PostBack completed!!";
}

.aspx page
//And also you have to put script manager between form tag.

<asp:UpdatePanel ID="updpnlSubmit" runat="server">
<ContentTemplate>
<asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" Text="Submit" runat="server" OnClick="btnSubmit_Click" />
<asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server"></asp:Label>
</ContentTemplate>
</asp:UpdatePanel>

Hi, mroonal. I tried your piece of code but it doesn't work. Imagebutton still keeps being enabled when processing.

Hi samirbhogayta, I can disable a Button control, but I can't do the same for an ImageButton.

It's quite strange that you can disable a Button control when processing, but it's not possible do it for ImageButton.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok, don't worry try this

document.getElementByID(imgbtn).disabled = true;

document.getElementById(imgbtn).disabled = true;

If still not working, then you can use simple UI blocker plug in.

like jQuery BlockUI

I found myself the solution:

" this.disabled=true; "  should come first.

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then

           Dim strProcessScript As String = "this.disabled=true; this.value='Processing...';"
           btnProcess.Attributes.Add("onclick", (strProcessScript + ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(btnProcess, "").ToString))

        End If
    End Sub
