In this post I will explain how to easily detect Enter key in Jquery.

In order to detect Enter key in Jquery I assume that you already have a textbox element with id = findbyName in your HTML code.

So when pressing ‘Return-Enter’ on search key input field the your_code_here() function
will be executed.

$('#findbyName').keypress(function(e){
	if(e.which == 13) {
		your_code_here();
		e.preventDefault();
		return false;
    }
});

I presume that the your_code_here(); function will take the contents of the textbox #findbyName
and will feed a search function with what you typed in the textbox.
