    Thanks for a great suggestion!

    I was down another very long process that was going to cost me
    a lot of time. I discovered that if I removed %BS_OWNERDRAW
    from the buttons that I did not have the problem. But most
    consfusing if I left %BS_OWNERDRAW but removed all drawing
    code the problem still occured. Somehow %BS_OWNERDRAW had
    something to do with have %IDOK being assigned to the last
    button drawn. Glad I won't have to figure out why.

    Joe;

    Create a "Dummy" button which is placed outside the boundaries of the Dialog. If the Dialog is 400 units wide , put the button at 420 (X coordinate), so it can't be seen.

    Then use %IDOK for the ID number for that button.

    Make sure the Button doesn't use the default Styles (0), but define it as %WS_CHILD or %WS_VISIBLE . Do not use the %WS_TABSTOP style for it.

    Then when you press enter, that buttons event (CallBack) should be fired.

    %IDOK needs to be assigned to a real control.

    Semen, I checked and do not have %BS_DEFAULT anywhere in the
    program. I do have CONTROL SET FOCUS in the program, but it
    is set to different button than the last button on the screen.

    I had a few SENDMESSAGE's for FONT Selection. Removing them
    had no effect.

    My problem is NOT trying to set a default value for the ENTER
    key. It is unsetting it, if that indeed is what I have
    inadvertently done.

    Joe --
    You can set "default" button
    1) in CONTROL ADD BUTTON - see %BS_DEFAULT
    2) dynamically
    CONTROL SET FOCUS hDlg, CtlId
    CONTROL SEND hDlg, CtlId, %BM_SETSTYLE, %BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON, %TRUE (Lance' suggestion)

    ENTER Key in DDT

    In my program I am not trapping KB events (yet). I do process
    the ESC key because it generates the message %IDCANCEL. I
    want to do something with the ENTER key using its message
    %IDOK. But I find that the ENTER key always sends a message
    with the ID of the last button drawn on the screen
    (CONTROL ADD BUTTON). I confirmed this by moving buttons
    around on the screen and get a different ID depending on
    the last button drawn.

    I know that the focus is always set to the first button on the
    screen, not the last. And I have removed all %WS_TABSTOP
    options from all buttons.

    Does anyone have any idea what "option" I have set that causes
    the ENTER key to identify itself as the last button on the
    screen instead of delivering %IDOK.
Working...
