Default Button

I can only get this to work intermittently. The stuff in the dictionary does not happen, and I cannot get a mouseUp message to fire.

If I set the default of a certain button I cannot get anything to return that fact. (answer the defaultbutton of this cd)

But sometimes it does.

I put a default button a card that has a couple of field controls on it.
 The field controls all have lockText set to true and traversalOn set to
false.  Pressing the return key when the card is active does not execute the
mouseUp handler for the default button as claimed by the dictionary.  Is
there some other setting of the card/button/controls that I have to use?
