You need to trap the KeyPress for KeyCode 13 and trigger the appropriate button click.

you'll have to use javascript. Call this function on KeyDown event to check what key was pressed

function CaptureKeys() {
      if (event.keyCode == 13) {
            //your code here

i set forms KeyPreview Property = True

and on Fomrs_KeyDown Event

If (e.KeyCode=Keys.Enter) then
   SendKeys "{TAB}"

This works fine for all object on the form.
