: Hello!
: I developed a simple program which calculates the average. But in the exe only tab key works. Enter key is not working to switch between the text fields. What attribute need to be set. I am a beginner in Delphi programming.

Set the Form.KeyPreview to True.
Set Default to False for every button in the form.
Make the event OnKeyPress for the Form like this:

Procedure Tform1.FormKeyPress(Sender: Tobject; var Key: Char);
  If key = #13 then
    Key:= #0;
