Unable to restrict adding a new row upon Enter



How to avoid adding new row to a repeating grid when you press the Enter key.


This issue is resolved through the following Local-change:

Include the below code in a non-auto generated section and include this section below the grid in the main section.


var orig;
 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;

 if(target && (target.type=="CHECKBOX" || target.type=="radio" || target.tagName=="SELECT"))
