Hi All!

I'd like to help my users by changing the way the return key down condition works in certain textboxes in which they write like in MS Word.

The goal is simply to press return, rather than control+return to input a line feed.

Now I've tried putting this into the keydown event for my textbox:
Code:
If KeyCode = vbKeyReturn Then
TextBox77.Value = TextBox77.Value & Chr(10)
End If
This does the first part and puts a line feed in. Now I need to stop the rest of the return's action and make it stay in the textbox, with the curser on the new line.

How can I achieve this?

No special stuff required. Just tell the form how to handle the enter key for this textbox:

Code:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
TextBox77.EnterKeyBehavior = True

End Sub
