Based on my experience using it in the wild and some great feedback from those of you that downloaded it, I’ve made a few updates to Postback Ritalin. Get it and enjoy.

If you haven’t seen Postback Ritalin yet, it’s an AJAX Toolkit control extender to automatically disable an UpdatePanel’s submitting control during partial postbacks and then re-enable them after the partial postback completes. More details are available on the permanent Postback Ritalin page.

Changes in this version

  • Added WaitImageURL, to better support ImageButton controls that raise postbacks.
  • Added a check to ensure that the control raising the postback is either an ImageButton or Button type, to clear up some issues with submitting a form with enter while a Textbox is focused.
  • Added a check to make sure the control that raised the postback still exists after the postback completes, in case the newly updated div no longer contains that element (e.g. a form that transitions to a confirmation message)

I’m considering changing the name to something more banal. If you have any suggestions for a more suitable name, please leave a comment or contact me. I’d love to hear what you think.

If you like this one, stay tuned. I’ll be releasing another handy Web 2.0 type control in the next few days.
