CF Flash forms

Oct 26, 2009 1:15 PM

I've built a few Flash forms in Dreamweaver and they only submit with the spacebar key, I can't find how to use the enter key to submit the forms? One is a really simple search field with a submit button, and I think users would likely want to just type and hit enter the way they would with a regular form.


Also the submit button in some forms is in a formgroup (hbox) under a few other fields and it is aligned to the far left, while the other fields are further over. I tried setting a left margin but that only stretched out the button. What's the best way to position it?

    Hi Nevesky,


    Try this code, it works.


    <cfform action="" method="post" name="searchform" format="flash" id="searchform" timeout="180" height="250">
        <cfformgroup type="tile">
              message="You must enter text in the search
              field" onKeyDown="if(Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {submitForm()}"
          <cfinput type="submit" name="search" value="Search" id="submit" tabindex="0">
