I have a textbox, and it's set to multiline, so a user can enter a few sentences. The problem is, if the user hits the enter button while in the textbox, it's starting a new line. This data is being saved as a text file, and it's causing problems when the text file is loaded back into the app, causing load failures.
I'd like to completely make the enter key useless when the textbox has focus. Or, if they hit enter, it tabs over to another button.
Here is some code I used to make the enter button behave more like a tab-
Private Sub txtCallNotes_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then Me.btnSubmit.Focus() End If End Sub
The problem is, the enter button still does a carriage return, causing a new line.
In the properties, Accept Return is False.
Is there any way this can be prevented??
