    The "Enter Key"

    jmortimer Level 1
      After building a form to collect data - the user cannot use the keyboard's "Enter Key". Why? Even if the user tabs over the "Submit Button" and hits "enter" on the keyboard - nothing happens. The user must move the mouse over the "Submit" button and left click.

      What code do I have to include to perform this user input?
      Thanks for any ideas.

          The Button is designed to be pressed using the space bar. If you want the Submit button pressed whenever a user presses Enter, then, set the defaultButton property on your Container that the Button is in. Here is the ASDoc on defaultButton:

          defaultButton property
          defaultButton:IFlexDisplayObject [read-write]
          The Button control designated as the default button for the container. When controls in the container have focus, pressing the Enter key is the same as clicking this Button control.
