DefaultCommand (<b:defaultCommand />) since 0.8.5

The <b:defaultCommand> controls which button fires the click event when the enter key is pressed.

Basic usage

The default command lets you specify which command has to be fired, using the target attribute set to the command id.

The default command button is 'Button2'.



Multiple default commands in the same page

The <b:defaultCommand> component activates the click listener on the closest form of the component.
This way, you can define multiple defaultCommands in different form scopes.

Note that each form can support only a single defaultCommand. You have to split your page into several forms in order to add multiple defaultCommands. Also note that defaultCommands only apply to the surrounding form. Defining a default command in a form doesn't add a defaultCommand to any other form on the page.

Search Expressions

Default commands allow you to use search expressions. In many cases this allows you to get rid of the ids.
