I found it to be pretty tricky because no event seems to be able to capture the "return" key when you edit a textbox or combobox. The "return" key should trigger a submit action and mysteriously, the search combobox on the top right corner of this forum page can do that. Can anybody tell me how? Thanks in advance!

You can extend EventListener and register for onOK event, to listen for ENTER event:

component.addEventListener("onOK", this);
