Form won't re-enable submit button after validation errors show

Greetings, I am trying to fix my form where it allows you to correct mistakes that you made. But, the submit button stays grayed out, when validation errors are found. I also have a spinner that is supposed to show when the form is being submitted and hide when its not. Can you please help me figure out why my form submission button will not re-enable?

var PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm = {
    initialize: function() {
            'submit.payola-onestep-subscription-form', '.payola-onestep-subscription-form',
            function() {
                return PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm.handleSubmit($(this));

    handleSubmit: function(form) {
        if (!PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm.validateForm(form)) {
            return false;
        $(form).find(':submit').prop('disabled', true);
        Stripe.card.createToken(form, function(status, response) {
            PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm.stripeResponseHandler(form, status, response);
        return false;

    validateForm: function(form) {
        var cardNumber = $( "input[data-stripe='number']" ).val();
        if (!Stripe.card.validateCardNumber(cardNumber)) {
            PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm.showError(form, 'The card number is not a valid credit card number.');
            return false;
        if ($("[data-stripe='exp']").length){
            var valid = !Stripe.card.validateExpiry($("[data-stripe='exp']").val());
            var expMonth = $("[data-stripe='exp_month']").val();
            var expYear = $("[data-stripe='exp_year']").val();
            var valid = !Stripe.card.validateExpiry(expMonth, expYear);
        if (valid) {
            PayolaOnestepSubscriptionForm.showError(form, "Your card's expiration month/year is invalid.");
            return false


        var cvc = $( "input[data-stripe='cvc']" ).val();
        if(!Stripe.card.validateCVC(cvc)) {

You might want to put an onchange handler for any input element, setting the submit.disabled to false. From what I’m seeing, you don’t actually ever do that.

Can you further explain? Should this onchange handler be a part of the showError function? How should approach implementing these changes? I’m trying to avoid breaking the solution entirely. That seems to be the only part that’s failing me, currently.

Ugh. Rails.

No, so the onchange would be completely outside of the Payola thing. The showError is where it gets disabled, but you would need to do something OUTSIDE the payola thing to handle re-enabling that. Something like:

var inputs = $("input");
inputs.on("change keyup", function(){
  $(form).find(":submit").prop("enabled", true);

Put that outside your Payola thing, should do what you need.

Thanks. I will try your approach & report back.
