I have a page that contains a simple form.

When I click on the submit button, all goes as planned, and when I call getParameter("action"), I get "something".

However, when I hit the enter key instead of clicking on the submit button, the form is submitted but the parameter "action" is "null".

What is the best way to handle this problem?

The reason why the value of the button is not getting passed is due to the fact that it was not in the reason why it was sumbmitted, the button was equlivilant of sitting there disabled.

Way to get around it, not sure off the top of my head!

People have used hidden fields to pass the value, but that might not be he right solution.
