Platform mechanism to prevent button double-clicking

By Gonçalo Veiga on 24 Sep 2010
It's always a problem when users click on buttons more than once, duplicating server requests.
There are solutions for both client and server-side.

This hassle exists for such a long time and happens on so many projects!
Everyone should do a 'like' on this idea!

The platform should provide a simple way to prevent duplicate action submissions (enabled by default but configurable for asynchronous actions).

Screens actions that are slow tend to have people clicking "Save"/submit multiple times because they aren't sure they already clicked.

The existing workaround based on javascript should be implemented by the platform itself.

Note: this idea came from this discussion:

As a workaround... You can temporarily disable the button after click, and enable aggain after a timeout. A two-lines javascript code would make this happen.
