Asp.net login control - Log in on Enter key press?


I thought that the default behaviour for the login control was to log in on the Enter Key press instead of clicking the Log In button but this isn't working for me.  The Login Control's LoggingIn event doesn't fire when the Enter key is pressed so the page just refreshes without logging in.  When I log in by clicking the button everything works fine.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Here is what I had to do in order to make it work:

ImageButton buttonLogin = Login1.FindControl("LoginImageButton") as ImageButton;
Page.Master.Page.Form.DefaultButton = buttonLogin.UniqueID;

As you can see I'm using an imagebutton and master page, in any case,  you get the idea.

Hope this helps.
Btw, that code goes inside of Page_Load.
btnLogin.UseSubmitBehaviour = True
