Hi, I have a form with lots of fields. The end user is asking if it is possible to have the Enter key NOT submit the form. They want to use the Enter key to move from field to field, like the Tab key. They want the user to have to click on the Submit button to submit the form. I think they'd also need to allow the Enter key to submit the form if the user was on the Submit button and pressed Enter. Is there an easy way to make this happen? Thanks, Vicki G.

Here's an old solution to your problem. You have to create custom jQuery. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1009808/enter-key-press-behaves-like-a-tab-in-javascript
