hi davichoi,

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  Db, DBTables, Grids, DBGrids;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    DBGrid1: TDBGrid;
    Table1: TTable;
    DataSource1: TDataSource;
    procedure DBGrid1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
      Shift: TShiftState);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin
if key = 13 then key := 9;
end;

end.

Thanks for you answer. But I use the <Tab> to switch to the other controls, so I have desabled the <Tab> key in the
DBGrid->Options.

I used the following codes to let <Enter> key to act like <Tab> key with ordenary controls to switch to each other in the KeyDown Event:

If Key = vk_Return Then
      PostMessage(Handle, WM_NEXTDLGCTL, 0, 0);

It worked very well. In case do you know how to do the samething with Windows API to achieve the same funcionality?

Thanks.
