    CF Flash forms

    neve_m

      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?

            This is one of them. Even if I tab over to the button the enter key doesn't submit it. Spacebar does.

             

            <cfform action="" method="post" name="searchform" format="flash" id="searchform" timeout="180" height="250">
                  <cfformgroup type="tile">
                  <cfinput type="text" name="searchtext" required="yes" id="searchtext" width="150" message="You must enter text in the search field">
                  <cfinput type="submit" name="search" value="Search" id="submit" tabindex="0">
                  </cfformgroup>
                </cfform>

              Hi Nevesky,

               

              Try this code, it works.

               

              <cfform action="" method="post" name="searchform" format="flash" id="searchform" timeout="180" height="250">
                  <cfformgroup type="tile">
                    <cfinput 
                        type="text" 
                        name="searchtext" 
                        required="yes"
                        id="searchtext" 
                        width="150" 
                        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">
                  </cfformgroup>
              </cfform>
