How to stop ENTER key from pressing button ?

Recommended Posts

I have a simple GUI asking for name, login, password and comment.

Problem is, i cant press ENTER when typing in the comment control because when i do, CREATE button is pressed.

In fact, no matter what field is active, pressing ENTER will always activate the button.


This prevents me from typing multiple likes in the Edit control.

How to solve this ?

OK but that still does not allow me to create new line into comment section by pressing ENTER.

$CommentPrompt = GUICtrlCreateEdit ("",0,200, 200, 110,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_MULTILINE)

How to fix that ?

A better syntax would be:

$CommentPrompt = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 200, 200, 110, BitOR($ES_AUTOHSCROLL, $ES_MULTILINE, $ES_WANTRETURN))

See the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki to understand why.
