Not today, but you could do something simple in application.js in your app.

Splunk.Module.SubmitButton = $.klass(Splunk.Module.SubmitButton, {
    onClick: function($super, event) {
        $(event.target).attr("disabled", "disabled")
            .css("background-color", "#CCCCCC");
        $super(event);
    }
});

This of course only handles greying out and disabling the button. A lot more work would need to go in to enabling/restoring the color of the button.

No promises, but I'll add it to some upcoming work that the team is doing.

Did this functionality get added?

@araitz, is there any updated solution here? It's annoying to have zero feedback as to whether the dashboard is doing anything or not. JobProgressIndicator is the best we have for now, but it's an inferior option.

When I look at it, there would be a couple of fundamental changes that would need to happen that would take an experienced person a few hours and someone new to Splunk development a few days. Most importantly, the SubmitButton is a superclass of the AbstractModule, not the DispatchingModule which provides the hooks necessary to monitor the dispatched job and return the button to the desired state depending on the state of the search job.

Thanks. This helps. However I need to restore the button back once the search is done. Can you tell me whether it is feasible and how much work it is.

Did you get an answer to this question ? I have a similar need, I am not sure how to do this other than writing custom javascript.
