Ummm ... dunno, tell him not to click enter  on keyboard but make sure he clicks
the search  button ?

Perhaps catch key strokes ... but I don't know how ?
Why is there a problem  if he clicks  enter ?


both pass the SearchValue ... so why is there a problem ?

I've ran into this prob with some past pages - where the form is submitted
when hitting the enter  key from within a text  field & the form auto-posts.
If you're not enabling viewstate on the page  - or on the elements you want
displayed - then they will show up after that post. If you don't want to
use viewstate, then you'll have to reload your elements manually. I
haven't found a way of disabling that post event -- perhaps a javascript
function call could help  - but i belive it's IE's behavior to do this...

since that is where all the Classic asp  programmers "live" and such
inquiries are excellent material for those archives. The problem  is the
members here want ASP.net qustions and answers and classic ASP questions
break the flow and distract from ASP.net threads.

Here's a bit of code I found to solve this problem:

<script language=javascript>
var clickedButton = false;

function check()
if (clickedButton)
clickedButton = false;
return true;
return false;


<BODY ms_positioning="GridLayout">
<FORM ID="Form1" onSubmit="return check()">
<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" ID="Text1" NAME="Text1">
<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" onClick="clickedButton=true" ID="Submit1"

I know that it is bad for me to answre an ASP question here,
but I guess I was born to be bad!
