hiding submit button

I have a form with a submit button and an onsubmit event.

fCheckform = function() {
var status = false;
//
// some checking here, if its ok then status get set to true
//
if (status) {
var el = document.forms["details"].elements["finish"];
el.style.visibility = "hidden";
}
return status;
}

<form name="details" method="post" action="test.php"
onsubmit="fCheckform()">

<input name="finish" type="submit" value="Finish">
What's happening is that the submit button flashes off and then back on
when 'status' is true. Is there a way to keep/make the submit hidden if
fCheckform returns true?

I did some more testing and it looks like the page is getting reloaded
each time fCheckfrom returns - I'm incrementing a global variable in
fCheckform and when I alert its value its always the same???

Not if you submit to a new instance of the same page.
