How to finish editing label on enter press


When I am editing the label of a connector and press enter, I do not want the label to have a new line, but instead finish editing and apply the text entered (without a new line character) to the label.

Is there any way to do this?

Hi David,  
Please use diagram commandManager to achieve your requirement. While editing a label, when we press enter key, the command manager executes method(stopEdit) will be called and we have performed endEdit action in it. Please refer to the code example and help documentation.  
Code example:   
var Commands = new Dictionary<string, object>  
                new Command  
                    CanExecute = "canStopEdit",  
                  Execute = “stopEdit”,  
                    Gesture = new Gesture {Key = Keys.Enter }  
            DiagramContent.CommandManager.Commands = Commands;  
function canStopEdit() {  
     if (args.model.selectedItems.children.length > 0) {  
                                        return true;  
 function stopEdit() {  
        var diagram = $("#diagram").ejDiagram("instance");  
    //label editing stop once we press an enter key                                             diagram.model.commandManager.commands["endEdit"].execute(args);
