Prevent Duplicate Inserts During a Patch in Button's OnSelect

I have a "Submit" button performing a Patch to do a record insert to a SharePoint collection. AutoDisableOnSelect is set to true which will disable the button while the OnSelect action is being performed. 


I am finding that during the "lag" of which the Patch is trying to insert the record into the list, I am able to press the button again, and thus a duplicate entry is inserted. This seems to be happening often with my users because there isn't any visual feedback that the Patch is in progress, (like a progress bar or something) and the users seem to want to hit the Submit button again.


Any suggestions on how best to solve this?

Hi @Tamas

It seems like you need to use the ID returned by the submit/patch operation in order to avoid duplicates.

Difficult to be more precise without more information.
