Sometimes, we need to disable the submission of a form on Enter Key press. In this codesnippet you will find the code to disable the form submission on Enter/Return Key press.
First write the below javascript function before </head> tag.

<script language="JavaScript">
function disableEnterKeyPress(e)
    var key;   
        key = window.event.keyCode;
        key = e.which;   
    return (key != 13);

If you want to disable it completely for whole page, then you need to use OnKeyPress handler on <body> tag of your page.

<body OnKeyPress="return disableKeyPress(event);">

If you want to disable it when enter key is pressed in textbox field, then you need to use OnKeyPress handler on that textbox.

<asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server" Text="" OnKeyPress="return disableKeyPress(event);"/>
