Pressing enter causes click on panel

In C# 4.0 winforms, when the user presses Enter, I want to call the click event of a panel. Seems like there ought to be an easy way to do this but my poking around hasn't show anything. Suggestions?

You can add a PreviewKeyDown event handler to the form and check for the Enter key.

if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Return)
{
                btnOk_Click(sender, e);//Or whatever your click event handler is.
}

If you have other controls, such as text boxes, on the form, you may have to add PreviewKeyDown events to those as well.
