Text Entry

Aug 24, 2017

We have a text entry field and a submit button on-screen.

Is there a way to setup the Enter key to terminate text entry and invoke the submit?

Here's the thing:  The text-box is examined for a specific input string.  If the learner presses ENTER, it becomes part of the string. The comparison fails.  Learners expect Enter to do a submit function from their web experience. At least... our testers expected it, so I suspect others will.

So... if we want the text box to only have the entered characters, and IF a learner presses ENTER after typing the text, we would like the Enter button to perform a SUBMIT function and not become a part of the text-entry string.
