Disable carriage returns ASP NET Browser

Is there a way to disable carriage returns using javascript (or any other way) so that when the user clicks "return" on his keyboard the web browser doesn't do anything (like reload, etc.)?

Thanks in advance!

Generally, there is no way to disable parts of the keyboard (hardware) from within a browser.
However, one trick is that you could put a text area on the screen, and then use CSS to creatively hide it...and then once the pages loads, set the focus to the text area...
Or possibly someone has a MUCH better idea.

well even if using javascript if there is a way to "do nothing" when a carriage return is entered, that would be just as good.

yes you can Stop return key.
<script>

 function kk(e) {

   key = e ? e.which : window.event.keyCode;
   if(key==13) {
      return false;
    }

 }


document.onkeypress = kk

</script>
