[Seaside] Re: Doubled Form Submit

Sure. Though it is mainly a client-side solution. Here is the Javascript
// jQuery plugin to prevent double submission of forms
jQuery.fn.preventDoubleSubmission = function() {
var $form = $(this);

if ($form.data('submitted') === true) {
// Previously submitted - don't submit again
} else {
// Mark it so that the next submit can be ignored
$form.data('submitted', true);

// Keep chainability
return this;

Then, here is how I used it in Seaside:
(1) I give the form a unique ID (html nextId) and have that in a temporary
variable id.
(2) After the form has been added, I add the following to trigger the
html script: '$("#', id asString, '").preventDoubleSubmission;'.

What this does is that it overrides default behavior to only submit the
form once. It would be much nicer if this were taken care of at the
server-side (something like "html submitOnceForm" instead of "html form")
as you can never count on the client side to behave properly.
