Submit button not firing on enter key press help..

Hello all this is a little tricky.  I have an ASPX page that loads a control within it.  The ASPX page holds the focus on a certain link button.  In the ASCX control I am using a CreateUserWizard and in that you set the button text etc like so:

<asp:CreateUserWizard ID="CreateUserWizard1" runat="server" ContinueDestinationPageUrl="~/BookWork/Protected/AuthorControlPanel.aspx?FirstLogin=true"
    DisableCreatedUser="false" Font-Names="Verdana" BackColor="white" CompleteSuccessText="The account has been successfully created.  Click the continue button to begin or wait and you will be automatically redirected to your Author Control Panel in 5 seconds."
    UnknownErrorMessage="The account was not created. Please try again." OnCreatedUser="CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser"
    CreateUserButtonText="Create New Account!" ContinueButtonStyle-CssClass="CreateUserContinueButton">

whats happening is everytime I hit submit its going to the main ASPX page button.  I tried surrounding the ascx into a panel and form but no luck.  Also I cant use defaultbutton because it does not have an id.  I have textboxes in the wizard area and then the button just creates at the bottom of it.  Any idea how I can on enter of any textbox make sure it hits this button it creates?

Hi There,

This is a common issue, I like to add the function call as an attribute to the control when the page is loaded, of course this all depends on the context.

There is a lot of information and code samples out there on this subject.

Hope this helps, Sean

sorry, you can do this:

 open the controls's Smart Task pane, and then choose Convert to CustomNavigationTemplate.

You should then see something like this:

 <asp:CreateUserWizard ID="CreateUserWizard1" runat="server" OnCreatedUser="CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser">
                <asp:CreateUserWizardStep runat="server">
                        <table border="0" cellspacing="5" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;">
                            <tr align="right">
                                <td align="right" colspan="0">
                                    <asp:Button ID="StepNextButton" runat="server" BackColor="Green" CommandName="MoveNext"
                                        Text="Create User" ValidationGroup="CreateUserWizard1" />

                <asp:CompleteWizardStep runat="server">
            <ContinueButtonStyle BackColor="#804000" />
            <CreateUserButtonStyle BackColor="Green" />
