Login trouble

I created a Web Application Project using VB.NET, I have a login form for users to login to the account, Now I have a username and password field for the user to fill in to enter their account, So after the user fills up the username and fills up the password field and hits enter, instead of entering the user account the page is reloaded, as in user accounts usually after filling up the password the user hits enter instead of clicking on the login button with the mouse.....so why does my application not work the way it usually does, like after filling the password field the user clicks enter and then enters his account....



Please ask if someone did not understand my question or needs more information....

You have to set the default to your submit button. The Login button should set to the submit type.

My problem has the same concept as in the Login page in this website,
http://www.experts-exchange.com, when I fill in my user name and password ,I do not have to manually use the mouse to click Login, I can hit enter and the user logins the page.....In .NET on the other hand if I hit enter instead of using the mouse to click the Login button the page reloads......I will post my code .....

Simply add the following line to your page's Load event, replacing "btnSearch" with the name of your button. It uses a hidden Page method called RegisterHiddenField and works splendidly:

Page.RegisterHiddenField("__EVENTTARGET", "Submit1")
