I need to prevent additional clicks on an wizard next step button. The reason is: there is a procedure, witch saves data to the database, and if the users starts spamming the next button, the data will be saved more then one times, witch causes errors. I've tryed to google, but I didn't find anything usefull, so if anybody met with this problem please help.

Thank you for the answers.

Hi, can you please share your code changes?

Disable the button immediately after in its Click event handler, so only one click will be possible, enable it again when you want to allow the click, for example, when next page of the wizard is ready.

Thank you very much.
I prefer Einsten's "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
I'm not sure about the wizard you mentioned, but the good practice for such scenarios is to not save anything until the very last step. You can keep all the user input in the session until that point.
