Using Enter Key with Textbox

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have a series of textboxes, and want to use Enter key to move from one to the next.  It seems I have to check for the Enter key using the textbox keydown event, and check for the Enter key.

Question 1.  Isn't there a better way to have Enter function as a Tab?

Question 2.  When I trap the Enter via KeyDown and change focus to next textbox, I get audio 'ding'.  That's usually a cue indicating an error.  Is there a way to suppress this 'ding'?

What wouldbe the best approach to accomplish validation as you enter into textbox


Here is what im wanting to do, i believe i have seen it done, but cant remember if it was while you were typing or at validation. But i think at validation would be fine.

We have a form that will allow you to enter an IP address. In the table, that is the primary key. I would like to validate either during the entry or upon submission if that value is already in the table, if it is, then they cannot submit.

Would it be best to use a compare validator and compare the entered value with a list of values returned from the table?

Any suggestions on how to accomplish would be great.

How to set focus on next textbox on Enter Key using jQuery

Normally, tab key is used to move to next text box and by default, when Enter key is pressed, the form gets submitted or it calls the default button click event. But it would be a nice feature for end-user to give him ability to move to next textbox using Enter key.

Textbox Editable GridView in ASP.NET

This article describes how I made a fully editable gridview in C# using ASP.NET 2. The idea is that the GridView looks and works like an Excel spreadsheet. You see all the cells in the table, and you can edit any of the cells you like, and they are automatically updated (i.e. saved to the database). This is very often how people expect data tables to work in web pages, and I've often seen people clicking in vain on un-editable gridview cells, somehow expecting to edit them, and not understanding that they need to click an Edit button at the end of the row.

Highlighting Rows with TextBox OnFocus

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key
