Tag - ASP.NET, question - winforms. :doh:

Ok, now, what have you tried?

Here, have a look at answer to same question asked earlier: make enter key act as Tab key on Textbox[^] - Solution1 is for Winforms and Solution2 is for Webforms.

private void dataGridView1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)

            if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
                e.SuppressKeyPress = true;
                int iColumn = dataGridView1.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex;
                int iRow = dataGridView1.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
                if (iColumn == dataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1)
                    dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1[0, iRow + 1];
                    dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1[iColumn + 1, iRow];

Use this javascript function, it will focus on next input control on pressing enter key.

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

        var inputs = $(':input').keypress(function (e) {
            if (e.which == 13) {
                var nextInput = inputs.get(inputs.index(this) + 1);
                if (nextInput) {


<asp:textbox id="TextBox1" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown"></asp:textbox>
<asp:textbox id="TextBox2" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown"></asp:textbox>
<asp:textbox id="TextBox3" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown"></asp:textbox>
