I have created a simple MFC application but I don't want to close the program when the user pressed the Enter key.
I don't know how to change this property.
Can somebody help me out?

I am using VC++ 6.0

Thanks!

Overwrite PretranslateMessage in dialog class:

BOOL CMyDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
    if( pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN )
    {
        if( pMsg->wParam == VK_RETURN ||  pMsg->wParam == VK_ESCAPE )  // Enter, Esc
        {
            ::TranslateMessage(pMsg);
            ::DispatchMessage(pMsg);
            return TRUE;
        }
    }
      
      return CDialog::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}

Hi
I suggest simply to go to the resource editor and in the properties window for the default button, which is OK button by default, to uncheck the "Default button" option. /it is in the "Styles" page /
Good luck
