Enter as the selection option

I'm using SqlWindows 3.1 ptf2, the problem I'm having is to use Enter as the
validation/selection tool in a combo box. Usually I just use on SAM_Click
to select the selection made, but now I need to add the Enter key as the
selection method to the combo box.

Thanks in advance.

You're spoiling your users with non-standard methods. I'd tell my users it
can't be done. But of you must, see SalMapEnterToTab(...)

According to Microsoft Interface Guidelines, thats allowed in dialog boxes.

Alternatively, he can use AutoComplete in the combo-box. To OP: Contact
me in Private E Mail for the code.
