Enter Key

Hi,
I use following code to prevent enter key:

function noEnter()
{
if (event.keyCode==13)
   event.keyCode=0;
   return false;
}
<Body onkeypress="noEnter();">

The Above Code works fine. it disable enter key to submit form.

Sir,
Is there a any way to exclude a Command button from this?
I mean when Enter Key is Pressed  on a command button, it shoud run.

Kindly give ur feedback.

Rgds,
Sohrab

function noEnter()
{
if (event.keyCode==13 && (event.srcElement.tagName != "INPUT" || event.srcElement.type != "button"))
   event.keyCode=0;
   return false;
}

eliminates button elements from running the rest of the code.

well, I can't really imagine why you can't use the above function, since It's a Javascript function, I asuume it should work on buttons as well. However it had a mistake there. here is the correct code:

function noEnter()
{
      if (event.keyCode==13 && (event.srcElement.tagName != "INPUT" || event.srcElement.type != "button"))
      {
         event.keyCode=0;
         return false;
      }
      else
            return true;
}

I'm not familiar with ASP.NET, so it might not work, but I don't think so...
