I have an inputbox class and I want to be able to submit the information using the

myform.acceptbutton = myform.mybutton

Hitting the enter key automatically will submit the information, but it doesn't work when the button is hidden or not visible.  I was wondering if there was a way to use the button when it is hidden.  Thank you.

Turn key preview on and You can check if the user hit the enter key and then call the buttonclick or method from there
like myform.mybutton.click();

nope, the events are not methods, so that won't work.  I might just work something out with the onkeypress event handler instead of using the button.  I need, however, to get a dialogue result.

further help would be much appreciated.
