Disable the enter button

I have created a dialog box in visual c++ 5.0.  For some reason the dialog box wants to close the application when the user presses the enter button on the keyboard.  I have tried several things to stop this, such as using the pretranslatemessage() and even disabling and deleting the 2 default buttons, but none of them have worked.  Can anyone help me please?

Sure!  Here is what you want to do:
1) Go into the dialog's header file.

2) Add:
   void OnOK ();
   in the public: section within the dialog class.

3) Go into the source file (.cpp) of your dialog box.

4) Add:
   void CYourDlgClass::OnOK ()
   {
   }
   to the end of the file.

5) Recompile the program and run it.

The problem is that the enter key is by default the same thing as clicking the ok button, which closes the dialog.  You don't want that to happen, so it is a simple case of overriding the default behaviour, which is to close the dialog.

If for some reason this doesn't work, or you have any additional questions, please don't hesitiate to ask.  Thanks!
