I have this form on one of my pages:

<form name="form8" method="post" action="">
      <input name="start_search" type="text" id="start_search" onKeyDown="checkSubmit()">
      <input type="submit" name="Submit5" value="Search">

This is the checkSubmit() function:

<script language="javascript">
function checkSubmit() {
   if(!window.event) { return; }
   if(window.event.keyCode == 13) {

When somebody wants to enter a string and hit enter while the focus is still on the textbox i have to submit the form. If the form is submited some query's are executed.

Ok. In Firefox i have no problem with this script, but in Internet Explorer it gives me an error "null" and thats all. Does nothing else.

Where is the problem?

Thank you.
