Default Disable Form Elements


I'm adding various layers of security to a web site and need a little guidance. I've set up some routines that check login attempts, freezing a user if thay attempt to login more than x times.

What I would like to do is disable the form submit button too.

Has anyone implemented something similar? I would prefer not to use Javascript.

Presumably you are posting back for each login attempt... so you should be able to just sent button.Enabled = False once they have reached their login limit.

The WebControl base class has the Enabled property so all controls derived from that will as well. They each behave differently, but they are all "Disable-able".
