I have a usercontrol (login.ascx) that gets loaded through the masterpage on load.

There's a submit button on it that I need to make the default button when someone doesn't click on it but just hits the <ENTER> key.  I know I can do that on an ASPX page...but how in a user control?

Thanks

This worked for me.
Page_Load is on the master page.
My test user control has a button named "Button1", which I'm setting as the default button on the master page:
<%@ Master Language="VB" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<script runat="server">
 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim ctrl As Control = LoadControl("ucDefaultButton.ascx")
        Dim btn As Button = CType(ctrl.FindControl("Button1"), Button)
        Me.ContentPlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(ctrl)
        Me.form1.DefaultButton = btn.ID
    End Sub
</script>
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server" defaultbutton="Button1">
    <div>
        <asp:contentplaceholder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">
        </asp:contentplaceholder>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

samtram0331,
  Trying to figure out why this doesn't work...


 Select Case CStr(Request.Params("page"))
            Case "home"
                Session("info") = " Home Page"
                Dim uc As UserControl = CType(LoadControl("includes/login.ascx"), UserControl)
                Dim btn As Button = CType(uc.FindControl("ImageButton1"), Button)
                ContentPlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(uc)
                Me.form1.DefaultButton = btn.ID
                uc.ID = "uc1"

it looks like you're trying to convert an image button to a button....try changing the line:

Dim btn As Button = CType(uc.FindControl("ImageButton1"), Button)
to
Dim btn As ImageButton = CType(uc.FindControl("ImageButton1"), ImageButton)

samtram...It forced me to use the IButton code..below.  But when I load that I'm getting the error message in the attached snippet
Session("info") = "Home Page"
                Dim uc As UserControl = CType(LoadControl("includes/login.ascx"), UserControl)
                Dim btn As IButtonControl = CType(uc.FindControl("ImageButton1"), IButtonControl)
                ContentPlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(uc)
                Me.form1.DefaultButton = btn
                uc.ID = "uc99"

I don't have the time at the moment to figure out why it won't let you set the defaultbutton in codebehind, but I found that if you wrap the user control in a panel and set the panel's default button, it works...below is a simple uc I'm testing with:
<%@ Control ClassName="ucDefaultButton" Language="VB" %>
 
<script runat="server">
    Protected Sub ImageButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs)
        Label1.Text = "Image button clicked! " & Now.ToString & "<br />Textbox: " & TextBox1.Text
    End Sub
</script>
 
<asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server" DefaultButton="ImageButton1">
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
    <br />
    <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>
    <br />
    <asp:ImageButton ID="ImageButton1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/disk_green.png" OnClick="ImageButton1_Click" />
    </asp:Panel>
