jquery disable form submit on enter

by in , 0

You can disable button on Submit but user can Enter to submit.

So you i use this code:

I have the following javascript in my page which does not seem to be working.
$('form').bind("keypress", function(e) {
  if (e.keyCode == 13) {               
    return false;
I'd like to disable submitting the form on enter, or better yet, to call my ajax form submit. Either solution is acceptable but the code I'm including above does not prevent the form from submitting.

Usually form is submitted on Enter when you have focus on input elements.
We can disable Enter press on input elements within a form:
$("form :input").on("keypress", function(e) {
    return e.keyCode != 13;
