I have a DetailsView that on its PreRender method, I set the Focus of the page to one of the textboxes inside the Details View.  It appears to work as a blinking cursor appears in the textbox I set the focus to.  However if I just press the enter key, the first Button on the page acts as if it has been clicked and executes its code.  I was just wondering how to stop the button from acting as if it was clicked and have the enter key do nothing when it is pressed

With the help of jQuery:

$("#TextBoxID").keypress(function() {
    var code = (e.keyCode ? e.keyCode : e.which);
    if(code == 13) { //Enter keycode
        return false;
    }
});


With javaScript:
