I am using the attached code to intercept the enter key so that it works like a tab key. I works find for text, list boxes, and combo boxes.  However when the focus is moved to a button, the enter key reverts to being a enter key.  What event of a button, do I have to hook this code to
Private Sub nametxt_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles dgvStagingMetricsList.KeyDown, _
    txtMetric.KeyDown, txtSelectedFile.KeyDown, txtTechnology.KeyDown, txtUnits.KeyDown

        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
            Me.SelectNextControl(Me.ActiveControl, True, True, True, True)
        End If

    End Sub
