The enter key does not activate the default button in a dialog created using CreateDialog() (the spacebar activates the default). This works fine with DialogBox(), what's up? Also, anyway to disable the spacebar from activating the default action? NOTE: not using MFC

Modeless dialog boxes are NOT checking for Enter or Tab , to fire the default button or to switch between controls . Try to apply WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT to your dialog . If it does not work , you need to capture and handle the Tab and the Enter key .

Modify your message loop to include IsDialogMessage()
