Javascript OnKeyDown Event

Trying to build something here using the onkeydown event and it is not working.  Here is what I have.

<input type="text" name="search-textbox" id="search-textbox" onkeydown="if (event.keyCode == 13) searchfunc()">
<a href="#" onclick="searchfunc()"><img id="search-button" src="images/search.gif" alt="Go" width="46" height="46">

When I type something into the box and click the image link, it works fine, but if I type in the box and hit enter, it just refreshes the page.

Any help is appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Return false in your searchfunc and make some small changes in the onclick event of the link and onkeydown event of the textbox
<script type="text/javascript">
function searchfunc() {
   // all your logic...
   return false;
}
</script>
<input type="text" name="search-textbox" id="search-textbox" onkeydown="if (event.keyCode == 13) return searchfunc()">
<a href="#" onclick="return searchfunc()"><img id="search-button" src="images/search.gif" alt="Go" width="46" height="46">
