"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use the OnKeyPress event of the edit box to do something when the ENTER key is pressed.
Is this what you mean?

procedure TForm1.Edit1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
begin
  if Key = #13 then
  begin
    // DO SOMETHING
  end;
end;

in addition to that...

procedure TForm1.Edit1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
begin
  if Key = #13 then
  begin
    Key:=#0; //"eat" the key, so it doesn't beep
    // DO SOMETHING
  end;
end;
