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.
