Handle Keypress event on a WebForm?

Hi there!

I want to call a CodeBehind Function on a WebForm by pressing "return" (or any other key).
I only know the keypress event on windows.forms, but how can i use something equal in WebForms?
Please help me out!

Regards
Claudio

i think there is no "direct" way to do this.

but you can catch the event on the client with javascript (add onKeyPressed - event to an element)
and in this eventhandler put the captured keyvalue in a hidden inputfield and post back your page to the sever.

now you just need to evaluate the value of this field in your code-behind page and call your function

Hope this helps,
