<AWT Dev> [8] Review request for 7194469 Pressing the Enter key results in an alert tone beep when focus is TextField

Hi Alexander,

should not we use SPIF_SENDCHANGE instead of SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE? It is 
possible that the user does not want to disable beep in his profile. On 
the other hand, I do not see any issues with SPIF_SENDCHANGE.

Thank you,
