Web Forms :: Stealing Secondary Button's On Click Event When Pressing Enter?

Oct 1, 2010

I'm sure this has been asked before I just did not know how to ask it to get the forums to show up the right answer. I have a master page with a search box and then a content page with an input box and a submit button. As I'm using the program, I as a keyboard lover always hit enter after typing text into a text field. The issue is that when I'm typing in the input box and I press enter, the search boxes button will steal this enter. How can I divide the two asp.net form elements so that when I'm typing in the search box and press enter, the search button is invoked and when I'm typing in the input box and press enter the input button is invoked? An example of this happening is in the code below

Web Forms :: Pressing Enter Fires ImageButton Click Event?

Mar 22, 2011

OK, been burning up Google and Bing trying to figure out a good solution to this problem, and so far, I feel like I've taken a dive down a rabbit hole - I'm just waiting on the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter to show up. Alice is kinda cute, but unfortunately, she didn't have any good suggestions, either.

Here's the scenario - I have a User Control on a Child Page that has a Master Page assigned. The control is for logging in to the system, so it contains two text boxes, a couple of links to password recovery and registration, and an ImageButton to handle submission of the username/password entered in the text boxes.

Everything works just as expected when the user actually takes the mouse and clicks on the ImageButton control.

Things don't work so well when the user enters a username and password and then presses the Enter/Return key.

While debugging, VS2005 (I know...ugh!) will stop at the LoginButtonClick event, and seems to run the code. Of course, the .Text property of the two input controls was empty, but the Request.Form collection had the values burried within the collection of Keys.

So, a little bit of digging got me to the point where they can login using either the Enter key or clicking on the ImageButton. So, everything seems like it's good, right? Nope, not so fast.

When I enter a username/password combo that's designed to fail authentication, the code will step through setting the error message, etc, but that information never makes it to the point where it's visible to the user.

I'm not seeing any extra postbacks (obvious ones, anyway), but for some reason, when the page goes to redraw when it's in a "failed" state, the notations just simply aren't there.

Below is the code in the User Control that handles the actual authentication routine. All controls, such as the Label with ID "message", are local to the User Control, so I don't think it's a FindControl("message") problem or something similar...just so bizarre that it disappears seeming without reason.

Web Forms :: Wrong Event Getting Fired On Pressing Enter?

Jan 12, 2011

I have two search textboxes and two corresponding buttons on my web page.One of the textboxes is a default textbox coming from the .master page and the other one is local to the page.Now,when I enter some text into the local textbox and press enter, the event of the master page button gets fired instead of that of the local button.How do I fix this issue? I tried to shift focus to the local button and on the text changed event but the master page button event is always the last one which is getting fired. I tried changing both the buttons to LinkButtons but then enter doesn't work!A

Web Forms :: Pressing Enter In TextBox Causes Wrong Server Event?

Aug 6, 2010

I have a few sections in my code with a button to do something different in each. I'm pretty sure the user would press enter to submit the section, but I would like to handle it nonetheless.To handle it, I put the "sections" into Panels, and set the default button for each. There is a total of 4 panels and default buttons set to their respective included buttons.When I press enter in 3 of them, the correct event fires, but not in one (it calls a different button).I put MsgBoxes (for testing) at the beginning of each server event to see which is being called, and it's not the correct one.I might as well post the code, but it's fairly simple. I don't know if the accordion affects it at all, but it doesn't seem like it should...


Sorry, I hate when people post way too long code, but most of it doesn't exactly apply, so just focus on the panels.When I press enter when in focus in on a textbox in BudgetReportsPanel2 and press enter, the
UpdateButton event is called instead.

Web Forms :: Pressing Enter In TextBox On A Page Triggers The Logout Button On Masterpage?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a logout button on the master page.

I have a textbox on my subpage.

When I click the text box i notice that the logout button on my master page gets focus. So if the user types something in the textbox and then presses enter/return (a common reaction it appears) the user inadvertantly logs themselves out as the logout button is triggered.

Is there any way of stopping this?

C# - How To Fire A Button Click Event When Enter Key Is Pressed

Jul 14, 2010

I have a form with several submit buttons. I would like the button's click events to fire when enter is pressed based on which textboxes currently have focus. I am able to specify one button using the code below by adding the onkeydown event to the body of the page and checking for Enter's keyCode

<body onkeydown="if(event.keyCode==13){document.getElementById('btnSearch').click();}">

I assume this code can be modified or call a function to perform a conditional to see if txtSearch or txtSubmit has focus and specify btnSearch or btnSubmit accordingly, but I am not experienced with javascript.

C# - ImageButton Stealing Enter Key Press?

Feb 4, 2010

I have an ASP.Net page with a usercontrol on it. The submit button for the page is within the usercontrol. There is an ImageButton on the page itself (outside of the usercontrol). Whenever I hit the enter key to submit the form, it always executes the ImageButton click instead of the submit button within the usercontrol.

I'm using a MasterPage for the style, so the form is within that which rules out using the form's DefaultButton property.

Jquery - Secondary Repeater W/ ObjectDataSource Databind Event Fired From Another Repeater's Click Event?

Mar 29, 2011

I'm having trouble managing how to call upon databind from clicking on a row over an already populated repeater that will populate data regarding the row clicked TO another repeater on the same page.

I've succeeded doing that with postback, calling a jquery click event of that row, taking the data of the specific row and passing it onto a "Querystring" and after postpack, it will be pushed into a Session which the ObjectDataSource of the secondary repeater will recognize and populate the data tables accordingly.

The problem is, I must do it without a postback or in other words purely on client side.

Javascript - Focus On Submit Button Using JQuery When Pressing Enter In Textbox?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a page with multiple textboxes and each has a button associated with it. This works as a search 'hub', I suppose, where the user can search by ID, name etc. When entering a search term for e.g. name however, pressing enter 'clicks' the very first button on the page (ID search), causing an error if the associated textbox is empty (which it would be if someone meant to search by name). I have attempted to rectify this using JQuery, and have written the following:

$('input:text').click(function (e) {

I'm simply using the click event so that I can monitor where focus is redirected, but eventually I would use .keypress. However, nothing happens upon clicking a textbox and I can't see for the life of me what is wrong with the JQuery. To elaborate on the problem, the .NET code used looks similar to the following throughout the page.

<td style="width:100">Company ID</td>
<td style="margin-left:3px;">
<asp:TextBox ID="...TextBox" runat="server" Width="230px"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:Button CssClass="Button" ID="...NameSearch" Text="Search" runat="server" /></td></tr>

This is generating this (view source):

<td><input name="...TextBox" id="...TextBox" style="width: 230px;" type="text"/></td>
<td><input name="...NameSearch" class="Button" id="...NameSearch" onclick="javascript:__doPostBack('...NameSearch','')" type="button" value="Search"/></td>

AJAX :: Pressing Enter In The ModalPopupExtender, Causes Login Button To Respond And An ImageButton On?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm using a ModalPopupExtender to display a login screen when an ImageButton (called Post) is clicked.The dialog pops up as expected and performs all the correct validations. When the user presses the Enter key, this causes the Login button to fire its Click event as it should.The issue I get is that I have another ImageButton on the main page. After the user presses Enter in the login and the page logs the user in, it does not fire the server click even for the initial post button that brought up the login, it fires the click of another ImageButton instead.

AJAX :: Textbox And Button Inside An Updatepanel In Internet Explorer When Pressing Enter?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm currently building a simple chat application and I have everything working real smooth except for one thing, and this problem is only in IE as far as I know (in firefox there is no problem).

In my chat application I have the textbox where the user writes the messages to the chat and the button that sends this message togheter in an updatepanel (so that there is no visible postback when pressing the button). I also have in the form tag "defaultbutton=" set to the button. The problem is that when the user uses Internet explorer and presses Enter instead of pressing the button with the mouse that after the 2 first times he/she does this causes the textbox to stop focus on it, which it shouldnt do as in the end of the button the code says it should focus, which works the 2 first times for some reason.heres the code where the problem exists:


form id="form1" runat="server" defaultbutton="Button1">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="scriptManager" runat="server">

</asp:ScriptManager> [code].....

Web Forms :: Onclick Fires Sometimes - Not Firing When Pressing Enter On Password Field

Mar 10, 2011

i have searched this forum about this pbm. But People posted about Dynamic Image Button .. In my case, this is a static design only. I have a login page with image button as the Login button. I set Panel's Default button to that image button. onclick event Sometime fires, sometime not firing when pressing enter on the password field..If this happens once, then even if i click on the Image button also, the event is not firing.. but the form is post acking....Strange! i have removed panel's default button and wrote this line instead on page_load..


Still, the same pbm persists. Even i click on the imagebutton without pressing enter key also, the same pbm comes sometimes...I couldnt trace why.
