How to make a button the default button when the enter key is pressed?
I have a form with a text box, and then a Back button and a Continue button.When users press the enter button the Back button is triggered instead of the Continue button. Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening?
How about setting the HtmlForm.DefaultButton property or the Panel.DefaulButton property?

The default behavior is that if a user enters in their user name and password and then hit enter (rather than clicking the button), it doesn't trigger the login button but triggers my search button on the top of the page instead.How can I remedy this problem?Justin Tothhttp://sportsalert.net
You could add a Panel control and set the DefaultButton
property to the control you wish to receive a click when enter is
pressed in one of the Panel's controls. (In addition to Panels,
the Form itself also
supports a DefaultButton property.) This...Image button and Enter Key

I have done a bit of research and still have not been able to find the proper solution to the enter key default key. Is there a fix or a workaround to be able to handle the enter key from any module(text box) in any pane in the DNN environment? We have a tab that will have mulitiple modules with search capabilites for one mod and other requirements for other modules.
I know how to code this and see it working in a non DNN environment When I move this to the DNN, I do not see the desired result. I tried to duplicate the login behavior. Like previous posts, you have to have the module in ...Enter Key does not activate button

Succes with it!

You don't need to. All you need to do is set the "DEFAULT" attribute of the
command button. This makes the command button's clicked event trigger when
the enter key is presses. You can only have one button set this way at a

Hi Everyone,Based on my research on the internet, I've found the following code added to the Page_Load event of my webform to allow users to hit ENTER as if he/she is clicking the submit button to submit the form. It's a data entry form. But when hit enter, a popup window saying "The web page you are viewing is trying to close the window. Would you like to close this window?" with 2 button (Yes/No). I am not sure why it happens this way. Anyone know why?

I have simple web page with user name and password textboxes and two Image buttons for Login and Cancel.
what I need is when I press Enter key any where in the form , I should be able to invoke the Click event on Login button .
I read about using default buttons ,but if you use these Defalut buttons you need to bind the function for each Textbox in a page which will be tedious for a page with 20 textboxex
This is very urgent
