How do I make ENTER key work as TAB key

How do I make ENTER key work as a TAB key in DATAGRID windows form C#, MS Visual Studio 2005. I am able to make this happen in Windows Form without DATAGRID but when I use the same logic in DATAGRID then it is not working. In other words I want to move the cursor to the next cell when user press the ENTER key(want to move horizontally), Right now when user press the ENTER key it move to the down (moving vertically).

Another good one shows the actual C# code you are wanting even though the request is to have it converted to VB.

Hello, you can try this two methods:

If your DataGridView has StandardTab = false, by using the DataGridView KeyDown event:
private void dataGridView1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
    {
        e.Handled = true;
        SendKeys.SendWait("{tab}");
    }
}

Open in new window

        SendKeys.SendWait("{RIGHT}");
