Prevent a button to react on Enter key RRS feed

  • How to prevent a button from react on Enter key press ?

    It's important to understand that the 'Enter' keypress can't be filtered out, I still have to use the Enter 'sign'. Only the Button should not react on it

  • In keyDown event:

    if(e.KeyCode != Keys.Enter)
    {
        //code will go in here if any key is press except Enter
    }

  • Hi,

    If you are focused on the button and press 'enter' on the keyboard the 'Enter' keypress event doesn't raise (react) - but by pressing 'space' then it raises a buttonClick event and a keyPressEvent..

    sounds a little confused.. but when does the 'enter' keyPress on a button raises that event?

    Regards Muli


    If some code doesn't work, don't worry help is on the way.. don't forget to mark your thread as solved when done...

  • Perhaps all that is necessary is to set the form's AcceptButton, as documented here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.form.acceptbutton.aspx.

  • Maybe the PreviewKeyDown event can be used. If not, you can try deriving from Button and overriding the IsInputKey method.
