I've got an OK and Cancel button on my VB.NET form and I want my OK button to be the default pushbutton, i.e. press <enter> to accept. I'm sure this one is staring me in the face but I cannot seem to find where I make a button the default.

On your form, set the AcceptButton property to the name of your OK button.

There is also a CancelButton property that will trigger the Cancel button click_event to fire when the user closes the window using the Close Window icon (or I think presses the ESC key).
