I have one web form which has only one textbox which is also not server control
now the strange issue is when I enter any text in the textbox and press enter then webform is doing a postback.

On the otherhand if I add one more textbox with different id
then web form does not do post back on either of textbox.

I need to know why it is doing postback at the first place where I have only textbox which even not a server control.
my code is below



Web form code

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="WebForm5.aspx.cs" Inherits="Documentation.WebForm5" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <input type="text" class="form-control" id="title" placeholder="Title" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Hello yadavdep,

Add following script in <head> section to overcome this issue.
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).keypress(function (e) {
            if (e.keyCode === 13) {
                e.preventDefault();
                return false;
            }
        });
    </script>

Hi Vishal,

 Thanks for your work around but I wanted to know why asp.net is doing it. Is it a bug or does it have a logical answer.

Hello yadavdep,

Generally most web browsers will detect when a form has only one Text-box and will automatically submit the form when enter is pressed.
If you have multiple Text-boxes or multiple form buttons, the behavior varies.

To solve this issue(using only one Text-box on page), you may need to look at a JavaScript solution to catch the enter key being pressed.
