    On my form i have a submit button that then runs a JS to do a whois lookup. I also need this button to work when the enter key is clicked

    my code is print "<input type=\"button\" value=\"Find\" onClick=\"javascript:whois();\">"; for the button but i have no idea on how to focus the enter key.

    Any help?

    I wouldnt know, this is all done in PHP and JS by someone else, i'm having to pick up from them and i know nothing on this. Where would that code go? I assum in teh form on same part as the submit button, or would it go in the JS?

    In the JS you could use document.yourForm.yourButton.focus();
    That would automatically focus on the button and would allow you the same functionality of the onclick event until someone changes focus on the page.

    I'm not sure if that will do what you want. It really depends on what's on the rest of the page.
