Carriage Return in Text-Area of Editable Table Form Causes Exit from Edit Mode

Hi Community

I am hitting an issue when using editable form table. A row can be edited by clicking the Edit icon which brings up a form containing input-text fields. When the enter key is pressed the edit form is cancelled and opens the same form but for the next row in the table.

Ideally I would like the edit button to perform a carriage return. Does anyone have any ideas about how to do this?

Many thanks

Editable Form Table -


In edit mode:

After enter is pressed the form is brought up for the next row and the previous row changes are not updated:

    As long as you are on JET v10 or newer, there was a feature added to the oj-text-area component that will allow you to use Alt-Enter instead of Enter to get the new line. Pressing Enter by itself will submit the change.
