I have a basic test ASP MVC web project that displays a list of 10 names and allows the user to select/edit any name. The project works fine.
My question relates to the edit view after the uses selects 'edit' for one of the listed names. The edit action code is listed below.

How do I change the text of the save button on the edit view to 'Please wait' while the data is posted back. As you can see from the code there is a 3 sec wait to simulate a delay.

here is the snippet of code from the edit.vbhtml code for the edit view.

<div class="col-md-offset-2 col-md-10">
               <input type="submit" value="Save" class="btn btn-default" />

I have tried using onclick but it doesnt fire.

can anybody help please?

Function Edit(ByVal id As Integer) As ActionResult
    Dim student As KeithViewModel = New KeithViewModel With {
            .Id = id,
            .Name = "Name" & id}

    Return View(student)
End Function

Function Edit(ByVal rec As KeithViewModel) As ActionResult
        ' TODO: Add update logic here

        Return RedirectToAction("Index")
        Return View()
    End Try
End Function

What I have tried:

<button type="submit"


     class="btn btn-primary"


              DisplayProgressMessage(this, 'Saving...');">




  function DisplayProgressMessage(ctl, msg) {

    $(ctl).prop("disabled", true);


    return true;

Why not put the 3 second wait and submit in the javascript, once you post back to the server code you can't mess with the client side until it renders again.
I see the dollars signs so I'm assuming you are using jquery already, it has a submit, so just put an onclick event on your input and make it a type button instead? This is just a suggestion, I do not know your specs or why you would put a 3 second delay on the server side code.

Thanks for your comment. I was hoping the submit on the input statement would process after any onclick event logic. clearly it doesnt, so I'll try your suggestion.
The 3 sec delay on the server side is to simulate the time for any database updates in the real world, so the change to the button text can be seen for a few seconds.
