Dialog: Default buttons in dialogs

It would be nice if it would be possible to set the default button (the one that will be pressed when you press 'enter') for a dialog button. For example

$( ".selector" ).dialog( "option", "buttons", [


text: "Ok",

isDefault: true,

click: function() { $(this).dialog("close"); }


] );

You probably should use a form inside the dialog and run the necessary action on submit.

This actually seems very error prone to implement without just doing what Jörn suggests, and I'd rather not throw a form around user content. I'll close as patcheswelcome in case someone can think of a sane way to implement this.
