Can you post the code for what you are trying to do? It sounds like you are overwriting the first event handler with the later one.

var obj = new AW.HTML.TEXTAREA;
obj.setSize(600, 100);

obj.setEvent("onclick", function(){
if(obj.getContent("html")=="insert your comment here"){
obj.setContent("html", "");
obj.refresh();
obj.element().focus();
}
}

obj.setEvent("onkeypress", function(){
if(event.keyCode == 13){
alert("Don´t use line break");
event.keyCode=0;
}
}

there it is, i think it´s as you say, hope you can help me.
thanks

This code looks fine, except that it is better to use 'this' instead of 'obj' inside an event handler - otherwise your code will break if there is another variable called 'obj'.

Thanks, i'll use it that way!..i found the problem in my code, it was a parenthesis problem, i wasn't closing the parenthesis of the setevent sentences, thanks again...

Rodrigo, you might also want to change this code -
obj.setEvent("onkeypress", function(){
if(event.keyCode == 13){

to
obj.setEvent("onkeypress", function(event){
if(event.keyCode == 13){

I gather that you are using IE. The above change will allow it to work with other browsers.
