    multiple buttons on a form


    This seems like a silly question, but I am wondering if anyone knows how to
    default which button will be clicked when a user hits return on a form with
    multiple buttons. The first button on the form is the one whose event is
    automatically fired. I don't want that to happen.

    In the .net framework library, I found information about creating the asp:buttons
    as either a command or a submit button. I then created the first button
    as a command, and the second as a submit, hoping to fire the second button
    when the user of my form presses return. No such luck. I also tried setting
    the "CausesValidation" of the first button to false, but still the first
    button is the one clicked by default when the user presses return.

    Any ideas?

    It's kinda browser specific, however there are ways to handle for different
    browser types; see the link below:

    Hello,
    Haven't tried this myself to see if it works, but try setting the TabIndex
    value of the button you want to be the default to 0 and any other buttons
    to 1 or higher. Its what I would try, but again not definitely sure it will
    work.

    Hi,
    This is basic stuff. Try using type=button for all buttons except the one
    you want to submit automatically. Then use the onclick event and javascript
    to handle those buttons.
