Capture Enter Key

I'm developing a website using PHP, Javascript and MySQL.

I have a login form with a couple of textboxes and a login button. What I
want to do is capture the Enter key so that when the user presses Enter, it will behave like tab and throw the onchange event (written for each field).

I have searched the Internet for hours now trying to find out how to do it,
but any methods that I have seen do not work.

Can anyone help me do that?

Reason you are not using the onsubmit handler on the form to do the validations?

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
