Great solution for my data entry form. I used it to avoid duplicate entries due to double clicks in the form button. I deactivate after the data entry adding a code to the clear button to add more data.

Tengo la misma pregunta
una vez activado no se vuelve a activar. Hay forma de que pasado 24hr se active nuevamente
Good morning. Once the button has been depressed and is no longer functional, is there a command to allow the button to reactivate after for example 24 hours has passed?
