You have to catch the keypress. And it depends on the element that has the focus how to do this. If fact, you should add a KeyListener to all elements that can possibly have the focus. The KeyListener should override the following methods: void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) Invoked when a key has been pressed. void keyReleased(KeyEvent e) Invoked when a key has been released. void keyTyped(KeyEvent e) Invoked when a key has In the method keyPressed you can then check for an enter to be pressed.
