how to replace tab key for enter key in a form

This may sound a little awkward,
but my client is asking to replace the tab key for fast data entry forms

We have a form with a couple of TextField’s, Combox’s, and PopupDateField’s and want to be able to move from one component to the next using the enter key.

any thought will be greatly appreciated!


You could have a ShortcutAction as Enter, bounded to the Window for example. You would have to create some custom logic on what should happen when enter is pressed. Check
12.6.3. Generic Shortcut Actions
from the Book of Vaadin.

It works really well, thanks

You can use my small implementation:
