    I'm trying to disable the button by clicking submit (In order to avoid double-click from the user). Below the code which I'm using:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function RequestStart(sender, args) {
    var submitButton = $get("<%= EditButton.ClientID %>");
    submitButton.disabled = true;
    <telerik:RadAjaxPanel ID="MainRadAjaxPanel" runat="server" LoadingPanelID="MainRadAjaxLoadingPanel" ClientEvents-OnRequestStart="RequestStart" >
    ....... The form controls ....
    <asp:Button ID="EditButton" runat="server" Text="Edit" SkinID="NormalButton" OnClick="EditButton_Click" />

    Since the above javascript function is needed to be used in many pages in the website, and the submit button name may be changed (For example: EditButton, SubmitButton, ChangeButton ....), I'm wonder If it is possible to find the submit button name and to disable it using the above javascript.

    Please, I need your help.

    Hi Bader,

    You could use the ajax EventTargetElement which the actual ajax initiator instead of the button id in the client code. See the following help topic form more information on this matter:
