Client Validation Help

I have a form that Im validating with the Client Validation Wizard. It works perfectly when I use <input type="submit" /> as the submit. However, I would like to disable the submit button on press.

I tried some code I found

<input type="button" value="Submit" onclick="this.form.submit();this.disabled=true; this.value='Processing'" />
but it skips the validation.

I also tried <input type=submit name='sub' value='Submit'> and put document.form1.sub.disabled=true after the return document.MM_returnValue but that didnt work either. If I put document.form1.sub.disabled=true before the document.MM_returnValue the submit gets disabled, but if the validation fails, the button stays disabled.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Just move all of the code in the onSubmit event of the form to the onclick event of the button.

Then instead of:

return document.MM_returnValue

if (document.MM_returnValue==true) { this.form.submit();this.disabled=true; }
