Trigger automation when user presses enter in a text box


I am trying to trigger an automation after the user enters text in to a text box and presses the enter key. Can anyone help?

There's nothing that does that exactly, but if the text box is changed or blurred when the user presses enter you can use the event off of that for your automation.

Use KeyPress event for enter and then start adapter.

thanks jaychandrak, please can you elaborate on your answer? KeyPress activates the automation irrespective of what key is pressed. How can start adapter change that?

Assuming text box is in windows form (openspan). Refer screenshot.

hey Jayahcnadrak, but is there a way to ensure that only the "Enter" key will work for this and not any other key?
