I have a html:text box in my page. But when i press enter key in text box it submits page. I dont want the page to get submitted.

I have also used html:file in the same form.

Please let me know what could be the problem.

There's no problem -- that's the way forms work in HTML. If there is a submit button on the form, a return in any field will cause the button to trigger.

If that's not what you want, you can either replace the submit button with a non-submit button and use it to submit the form under JavaScript control, or you can establish an event handler on the form that captures the key event and blocks submission
