Disable Enter in HTML forms


You have an HTML form with several submit buttons. Each button sets some variables that you need for processing the form correctly. You want to disable sending the form with Enter, you only want to allow the buttons.


<script type="text/javascript">

function stopRKey(evt) {
  var evt = (evt) ? evt : ((event) ? event : null);
  var node = (evt.target) ? evt.target : ((evt.srcElement) ? evt.srcElement : null);
  if ((evt.keyCode == 13) && (node.type=="text"))  {return false;}

document.onkeypress = stopRKey;


This tip is from here.
