    Hello,

    I have been having a great experience with JotForm.  I'm very impressed with the forms I can create and the great options that are available.  I do have a question though.

    I noticed that when I have a form filled out and I hit the enter button on my keyboard, it automatically submits the form.  Is there any way I can make it necessary for my client to manually click on the submit button to submit?  Can I disable the feature that makes the enter button substitute as submit?

    Thanks JotForm!

    Hi,

    Thank you for the kind words. We're glad to know you have great experience with JotForm. =)

    As to your inquiry, you can do this by making a field a required in the form.

    This will then require the form user to answer or fill in a question before the form can be submitted (or when Enter key on keyboard is used)

     

    Here is a test form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/31186019753960

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Thank you for your prompt response but unfortunately that will not work.  Let me explain what I want my form to do and maybe you can give me another way to do it.  As shown it the picture you sent me, I have a field named "enter code".  If that is filled with the correct code, I want the "sign in" button to take the user to an page containing an HTML.  If it is not filled with the correct answer, I would like the form to give some sort of an "access denied" message but give them a chance to retry a different code.  The only way I could think to do this was to have the HTML and "acces denied" messages on separate pages in the form.  I hope you can think of a way to make this possible.  Thanks!

    Use "Change Thank you Message after submission" condition instead. Note, please create your thank you message first before setting up a conditional logic to pass over on the currect bug.

    If correct,

    If wrong,

    Two conditions,

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you!
