Hi,
I have the following code


On pressing enter, the form doesn't submit. But if I remove one of input boxes, the form gets submitting.

Please suggest a solution to stop the form from getting submitted on pressing Enter key even when I have just one input box.

Thanks,
Abhinay

Thanks to both of you for the quick response

Eric,
I had solved the problem using the keyCode. Was just wondering if there is some other way of fixing it. I guess window.event.keyCode is the only way of making it work

Balan,
The hidden field will not solve the problem.

Thanks & Regards,
Abhinay

you might be able to put

<form onsubmit="return true" ...........>

not sure if that would work.

You are right Eric

The problem can be solved by using the onsubmit attribute of the form tag.

Thanks,
Abhinay
