Hi friends,

We have requirements that when user clicks combo box and then enter, it should submit request.

However, when we select combo box, control is with combobox hence, I have to move focus to next element. I have created java function for that. However, my problem is following lists of events available:


Out of above, only onchange event seems possible. However, when I use this event to move focus, there is another problem. If User use mouse to select value in combobox, it works fine. But still if user does not change value and hit ENTER, I have same problem.

Moreover, If some user use keyboard to scroll through value and try to select. It will move focus when he scroll one value.

I tried all combinations but failed so far. Moreover, I tried to search on internet without success. Any guidance or idea would be much appreciated.

Anybody who has face problem and any solution would be really useful.

here's something that would work:

I tried this on both Internet Explorer and FireFox, and it worked for both browsers.
