How to set a button from a user control the default button on an aspx page

Hi All,

I have added a user control onto an aspx page and want to make the
submit button of that user control the default button when the panel
in which the user control is located is visible. I have used the
code:
Page.RegisterHi ddenField("__EV ENTTARGET", "Login.btnSubmi t")
in the Page Load event but this does not make the submit button
default(enter) button. Any ideas on how can I do this. I have also
tried using just the name of the button instead of Login.btnSubmit
which is the nameofcontrol.n ameofbutton convention but to no avail.

HELP! Please.

If you wish to go this route, set default in the user control or expose the
user control up the stack so you can set the value. To expose up the stack,
set the button to protected instead of private, so you can see it at page
level. This is the proper OO method of setting up user controls (which most
examples DO NOT do).

NOTE: To pass back values properly, unless all work is done in the control,
you will have to raise an event (delegate) and handle on the page level. The
best way to do this is make the user control a complete object with
properties for the different controls.

NOTE (also): If you are using this particular piece on more than one form,
compiling into a server control is often the best option.

Page.RegisterHi ddenField("__EV ENTTARGET", btnSubmit.Uniqu eID)

should work

I posted this on the asp.net group, also. I wasn't sure whether this was an asp.net problem or a javascript problem. I have a page that was originally created from a program I found on the net that works well as an html page. It brings up a modal popup window that I have been trying to work out for days now and this was the closest I have been able to come. I added a little asp.net code and an asp.net button and cannot get it to

From an aspx page (A.aspx) I open another one (B.aspx - for table lookup). When the user selects an entry in B.aspx I would like to force a button's event in A.aspx to be fired. I guess the only way is using javascript - does anybody have a sample for this ? Thanks

Been a while since I looked into this and have forgotten how to make the ENTER default to a LinkButton and it does on a standard button. If I remember correctly it required javascript.

Greetings. I am in a very big pickle. I am trying to add page content - as well as a submit button - programatically to a web form that is supposed to submit to DB and then refresh. That is, a user goes to the web page, which draws the current content out of the db and inserts into a "preview" area as well as the form itself. User makes changes, hits submit button. The page *should* refresh, with the changes saved to the db, and...
