Subject Re: Default Button on Forms
Date Sat, 04 Dec 2010 05:07:38 GMT
Greg,

This seems to work with TextInputs but not with TextAreas. When TextAreas
have focus it looks like they're consuming the ctrl+enter keypressed event.
Any other ideas? Is the only way to do, as Chris mentioned, somehow
attaching a listener to every component in the form?
