Hello everyone,

I have setup a Search textbox in VB and I have a search button which does a search in finding records, but what if the user is lazy and does not want to select the Search button everytime and just selects the enter key.  Is there any coding that needs to be setup for the user to just select the Enter Key instead?  They want to do this also if the they so desire?

No code is needed.

Select the Form, then set the AcceptButton() property to your Button:

    "Gets or sets the button on the form that is clicked when the user presses the ENTER key."

Idle_mind,

I right click on the button, but see no AcceptButton property listed.

Re-read....  =)

"Select the FORM, then set the AcceptButton() property to your Button"

AcceptButton() is a Property of the Form, not the Button.

Idle Mind,

The form that I have is an Aspx web form not a windows form.

Do you have the setting of the property the same with a web form?

Ah...that makes a huge difference.  Be sure to state in your future questions if you're working in WinForms or WebForms.  =\

I'm not a web programmer so I'm not sure how to do that.
