[archive] Web Browser Question

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 04 August 2008]

We have a web browser control an a screen, along with some entry fields and a push button. The web browser control displays an active server page that requires some information to be keyed, and the a "submit" button to be clicked. Some data entry operators would prefer not use a mouse, but when the button is selected, it doesn't recognize the "ENTER" key. It seems it only recognizes a mouse click. Any ideas what may be causing this?

Thanks!

RE: [archive] Web Browser Question

If the ASP page is brought up in a browser (outside of being executed by COBOL) does the Enter key work on the push button?

If no, then the ASP developer needs to add that type of property to the push button.

If yes, then some type of bug is occurring

Thanks for the reply. After not hearing about this on the forum, I put a call into Microfocus and it was as simple as adding the property USE-RETURN for the web browser control. That did the trick.
