CFileDialog derived problem with CK_RETURN : 2

I have created a class derived from CFileDialog with the OFN_EXPLORER style. This class help me to organise some url shortcut like IE does.
My template has some buttons like "&Move", "&Delete", ...

All works fine but when one of these buttons has the focus
the enter key doesn't call the message handler of the button. However the space key works and the message handler is called.

I don't think that it's due to a default button problem... I already tried. I also tried to handle the WM_GETDLGCODE  message in my buttons and return DLGC_UNDEFPUSHBUTTON but this doesn't work.
 
Can someone  help me !

Thanks a lot.

What DOES the enter key do then?

The enter key is NOT SUPPOED to press a button.  Only the space key.

The UI design guidlines say "In addition, you can use the TAB key and arrow keys to support user navigation to or between command buttons. The SPACEBAR activates a command button if the user moves the input focus to the button."

Also...

"A default push button, on the other hand, is typically used to indicate the most common or default choice. It is a button that the user can select by simply pressing enter when a dialog box has the input focus."

Alright, but when I move the Focus between my buttons template the only one which has the focus already has on it the default push button style. Even in this way, the enter Key doesn't work.

I would like my CFileDialog derived class owns the same behaviour than The organise favourites under Internet Explorer.
Have a look on it !

Thanks for your help !

I thought you said you'd turned off the default button handling?

Perhaps you can set BS_NOTIFY style and trap focus changes and when you get a SetFocus for a button, change its style to be the default button (after un-defaulting the previous default button).

But if you haven't stuffed about with the default-button handling, then it seems odd that the enter key doesn't work for the common dialog's standard default button.
