Blank row is inserted on click of Enter key



On Repeating layouts, a new blank row is inserted when Enter is clicked.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Add a Grid or Row Repeat.
2. Click Enter key in the grid row.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior because on click of enter key in any row a new row gets appended.


Include the below code snippet for repeat grid:

<script>  var orig = pega.ui.grid.prototype.gridEventHandler;
pega.ui.grid.prototype.gridEventHandler = function(e,container)
var eventType = e.type;
var Event = pega.util.Event;
var target  = Event.getTarget(e);
var eventKeyCode = e.keyCode;
var isContextMenuOpen = this.isCtxtMenuOpen();
if(( eventType=="keypress" && eventKeyCode==13) )
if(!(this.bTreegrid && (Dom.hasClass(target, "expandNode") || Dom.hasClass(target, "collapseNode"))) && !isContextMenuOpen) {                                         
/* can improve the if conds  if needed */
if(target && (target.type=="CHECKBOX" || target.type=="radio" ||  target.tagName=="SELECT"))

Note: The above script does not work for row repeat as there is onKeyPress for every <tr>.
