OnKeyPress for ENTER in an Input field not firing?

var itsUsername = new AW.UI.Input;
itsUsername.onKeyEnter = function(event) {alert('Test');};

Never fires for Enter, but for all other keys.

Enter key is used to trigger validation events and got cancelled which is probably a bug. You can use onControlValidating, onControlValidated instead.

Thanks Alex, I'll give it a try.

There is a problem with that method. The event handlers are also called when you change the text inside an Input field and click outside of it.

The aim was to emulate a Default button on a web page, for example a "Login" button on a page filled with AW.UI.Input controls.

It would be possible to find out the source of the event if we had access to the Event as we could then check the Button member.

Ah! Found it.

Check the window.event object inside onControlValidate or onControlValidated.

if (window.event.type == 'keydown')
