Disable Button after click

 Hi all,

In my application, when I click on a button that inserts a record on
the database and closes the Activity, sometimes it takes long to close
that Activity and some users are clicking on the Button twice. That
causes that the record is inserted twice in the database.

Is there any way of avoiding this behavior?

Thanks in advance!

 Set a boolean variable when the button has been pressed and check the
boolean is false in the on click listener so that you don't process it once
it's already been clicked

Just disable the button when it's clicked, especially if you're closing the
Activity anyway.

Yes. Disable the button.

 As soon as the button is clicked, set  button.setEnable(false);
  This will disable the button and will avoid from double clicking it.

What is the way that you can put the apk file on the Netobook ?

Just use one USB cable to connect the Netbook and the host machine,
then use 'adb install' or 'adb push' to copy apk file to /data/app ?
(It seems the usb function is not enabled in this built android image)
