You have to write a handler for the OnKeyPress event to do what you what with the pressed key and the in the Edit box keypress event do the following:

procedure TForm1.EditKeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
begin
   if key=#13 then // if Return key pressed
      key:=#0;
   inherited KeyPress(Sender,Key)  // your new handler
end;
