Trigger A Button Click With JavaScript On The Enter Key In A Text Box

To trigger a button click with JavaScript when the Enter key is pressed in a text box, you can add an event listener to the text box’s ‘keydown’ event, and check if the Enter key is pressed. Then, you can call the click event of the button. Here’s an example:


<button>Click me</button>


// Get the text box and button elements
var input = document.getElementById("myInput");
var button = document.getElementById("myButton");

// Add an event listener to the 'keydown' event of the text box
input.addEventListener("keydown", function(event) {
  // Check if the Enter key is pressed (key code 13)
  if (event.keyCode === 13) {
    // Trigger the click event of the button;

In this example, when the Enter key is pressed in the text box with id "myInput", it will trigger a click event on the button with id "myButton".
