event bubble

I have one form in a aspx page. I have to have one form due to the design of the runat server elements.

I need the main form to submit when the enter key is press via mainonkeydown(event) or when the submit button is pressed.

However if the focus is in the "searchstring" input then subonkeydown(event) needs to be triggered when the enter key is press and the event that bubbles for the main form onsubmit needs to be cancelled.

I can get the side form to work only when I return false in the form onsubmit. Help.

Sample code below:


<script>
      function mainonkeydown(event)
      {
        if(event.keyCode == 13)
        {
                  document.Form1.submit();
        }
      }
                  
      function subonkeydown(event)
      {
          if(event.keyCode == 13)
        {
        document.location.href='page.aspx?searchstring=' + document.Form1.searchstring.value;
        }
      }
</script>


<form id="Form1" onkeydown="mainonkeydown(event);" method="post">

<input type=text name="searchstring" onkeydown="subonkeydown(event)">
<input type=button value="Go" onclick="document.location.href='page.aspx?searchstring=' + document.Form1.searchstring.value;">

<input type=text name="mainsearch1">
<input type=text name="mainsearch2">
<input type=text name="mainsearch3">
<input type=text name="mainsearch4">
<input type=button value="Submit">

</form>
