In VB.net there is no place I found on the properties window declare a button as the default button like in VB6.0( same as the enter button on the keyboard)

I tried this, Is this the right place (Form Load) for this code? it seems to work okay

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
               Me.AcceptButton = Button1 'enter button
        Me.CancelButton = Button3        'exit button


    End Sub

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

So your approach was correct. You can either do it in code like you did it, or just do it at design time

At design, you can choose "ok" at the option "DialogResult"
