Disable button onclick to prevent double submition

Today I had an simple task: to disable a button after a click to prevent double submitting the form data. I wanted to solve it as simple as possible. So here’s the final solution

<form method="POST" action="">
<input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submitBtn" onclick="this.disabled=true;this.form.submit();" >
</form>

It works like a charm – it disables the submit button and it submits the data.

NOTE
I have found a interesting bug in Chrome. My input button had its name set to “submit” (name=”submit”), but then chrome was reporting following error:

Uncaught TypeError: Property 'submit' of object #<HTMLFormElement> is not a function generate-form.php:onclick

The reason for the error when trying to call form.submit() is that your submit button is called “submit”. This means that the “submit” property of your Form object is now a reference to the submit button, overriding the “submit” method of the form’s prototype. Renaming the submit button allowed me to call the submit() method without that error, so I renamed it to “submitBtn”.

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected end of input error in Chrome

Today, while I was working with jQuery I ran on this error Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected end of input while troubleshooting my code in Chrome. And since Chrome it didn’t report error on any specific line I had to Google for it 🙂

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected end of input

And after opening few pages I found out that this error codes happens when you forget closing “}”. That can happen often when writing JavaScript code.

Locating that is not easy, especially if you’r code is sloppy and you have a lot of it. Luckily my code is always very nicely written so I got it solved quickly. But in case your code is really messy or is compressed (with some JavaScript compressing tool like jscompress.com) you can copy/paste your JavaScript code into jsbeautifier.org, click on Beautify JavaScript (select the options you want on the right side of the screen first) and see if all of the indentations are correct.

Beautiful and Geeky.
