Make button "default"

P: n/a
Does anyone have some sample script to "press" a button or image button when
the user presses the Enter key? I see this behavior on a lot of web pages
but I'm not finding any samples.

Thx

Hi Paul,

In case you have multiple buttons on a webform, you could try this method.

When a webform contains multiple buttons, the first one rendered will be
fired when you press the Enter button. However, we can workaround this
problem using the
following method:

1. Add the following script code to the <head> section of the aspx page.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
function testEnterKey()
{
if (event.keyCode == 13)
{
event.cancelBubble = true;
event.returnValue = false;
Form1.Button2.click();
}
}
</SCRIPT>

2. In the code-behind page, add the onkeypress event handler to the
attributes collectioins of the TextBox(es) on the page:

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
//other initialization code

TextBox1.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "testEnterKey();");
TextBox2.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "testEnterKey();");
......
}

I've tried this. I'm setting the tab index of my web server button to 1 and
I've set it to the next index in sequence for all the controls. In either
case, pressing Enter does nothing. This is on a web user control. I think
I need to use client-side script to capture the Enter key press - unless I'm
missing something.

The web server button control renders these tags: <input type="submit"
name="Login_Control1:btnLogin" ...

I am calling server-side code on the click event so I need to use a web
server button or image button.

I've set the tab index to 0, 1 and other values. Any ideas?

I used this script for component asp:button but it didn't work. Than I
changed the component with asp:imagebutton (also added gif image for button)
and used this script. Now it works right.

<input type="text" onkeypress="if (event.keyCode == 13) return false"
runat="server">

lep pozdrav, Jure
