Hitting enter in an editable repeating grid creates a new row



In section we have repeating grid for reserve, when we select a row of a particular accountline to update reserve, and hit 'enter' key ,a new row is added by default, which is OOTB functionality. No row should be added on hitting enter key.

Error Messages

No message just a row is added on screen.


This issue is resolved through the following local change: 

Use the below code in a non-autogenerated section and include the same at the end of section containing the repeat grid.


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"))
