    I need to change the focus of my controls pressing Enter key, instead of Tab for all fields in my solution.
    So I made a javascript code that change the behavior of Enter to Tab.

    function document.onkeydown() {
        if (window.event.keyCode == 13) {
            window.event.keyCode = 9;

    It works in all controls but the RadComboBox. I think it happens because the Telerik ComboBox has a default behavior for the Enter key, which does the selection of Items.

    Is there a way to disable this default behavior or something that resolve this problem?

    I believe you can achieve this by attaching "OnClientKeyPressing" event to RadComboBox. In the event handler, access the next control and set the focus to that control.

    More information about  "OnClientKeyPressing" event will be available here:
