I have this code on my login page where I have a submit button using an image. I want this button to be activated if a user presses their Enter Key.

How would I accomplish this?

<td align="center">
<input type="button" runat="server" onserverclick="DoLogin" ID="Submit1" NAME="Submit1"
                                                                                                style="BORDER-RIGHT: 0px solid; PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; BORDER-TOP: 0px solid; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(../CSS/Buttons/submit_plain.gif); PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: 0px solid; WIDTH: 132px; PADDING-TOP: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px solid; BACKGROUND-REPEAT: no-repeat; HEIGHT: 15px"></td>

Try this:


<Html>
<Body>

<script Language="JavaScript">
// Find browser name
var isNav4, isIE4
if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion.charAt(0)) >= 4) {
      isNav4 = (navigator.appName == "Netscape") ? true : false
      isIE4 = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft" != -1)) ? true : false
}

// Check which key has been pressed
// If you press enter then submit form
function checkWhich(evt) {
      alert("Hi");
      var theKey
  if (isNav4) {
        theKey = evt.which
      } else if (isIE4) {
        theKey = window.event.keyCode
      }

      if (theKey == 13){
            alert("Hi");
            window.document.form1.submit();
      }
}
</Script>

<Form name="form1" mathod="Post">

      <input type="button" runat="server" onserverclick="DoLogin" ID="Submit1" NAME="Submit1" style="BORDER-RIGHT: 0px solid; PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; BORDER-TOP: 0px solid; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(../CSS/Buttons/submit_plain.gif); PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: 0px solid; WIDTH: 132px; PADDING-TOP: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM: 0px solid; BACKGROUND-REPEAT: no-repeat; HEIGHT: 15px" onKeyPress="checkWhich(event);">

</Form>

</Body>

You might want to do something like following:

<body onkeydown="if(event.keyCode == 13){document.getElementById('ImageButton1').click();}">
...
<asp:ImageButton id="ImageButton1" runat="server"></asp:ImageButton>
