ASP.NET (C#) Question

Canceling the default submit button in ASP.NET

I have an ASP.NET application where there's a few ASP.NET buttons and several plain HTML buttons. Anytime there's a textbox where a user hits enter, the ASP.NET button tries to submit the form.

I know I can change the

defaultButton
, but I don't want there to be any default button. I just want it so when the user presses enter it doesn't do anything.

I've tried setting
defaultButton
to blank, but that doesn't seem to work. How do I prevent the form from being submitted by the ASP.NET button when enter is pressed?

Answer

You can set the button's UseSubmitBehavior = false

btnCategory.UseSubmitBehavior = false;
