I have a script / command plugin. On the main dialog is a text edit field, and a save button. How would I capture the input event of the enter key while in the dialog and have that run commands?

It seems there is no special Event triggered when "Enter" was pressed. But you can check if "Enter" is pressed:

  def Message(self, msg, result) :  
      bc = c4d.BaseContainer()  
      ok = c4d.gui.GetInputState(c4d.BFM_INPUT_KEYBOARD,c4d.KEY_ENTER, bc)  
      if ok:  
          if bc[c4d.BFM_INPUT_VALUE] == 1:  
              print ("Enter is pressed!")  
      return super(MyDialog, self).Message(msg,result)  

GetInputState let's you check any keyboard or mouse property. The "Enter" key is defined via c4d.KEY_ENTER. If the BFM_INPUT_VALUE is 1 the key is pressed.

Best wishes,
