Need to disable add row on Enter key



In a grid repeat, hitting the Enter key will add a new row to the grid. There is no out of the box option to disable this action on the Enter key only, and still allow adding rows via the '+' icon. In a row repeat layout, there is an available option checkbox "Allow Update" which accomplishes this. There is no equivalent option for grid repeat layouts.

The developer wants an out of the box option that will allow him to disable the "add row" action for the Enter key on grid repeats.

Error Messages

No error message

Steps to Reproduce

Root Cause

The product currently cannot be configured to disable enter key from adding a row in a repeat grid.
