Hi Aviral,

I added markdown to help make the code more readable. If you're curious about how to add markdown like this on your own, checkout this thread on posting code to the forum . Also, there is a link at the bottom called Markdown Cheatsheet that gives a brief overview of how to add markdown to your posts.

It doesn't work because your enableSubmit function triggers after the form has already tried to submit because you bound it to the click event. So what happens is, you click, it tries to send the data from the form, then it runs the enableSubmit function which then modifies the submit button, which is too late because it has already tried to send.
