You can use a ‘Key Up’ interaction to do this, then add a case for the key pressed being the Return key. This can then take the text on the search widget and use it to apply a filter to the repeater below.

i have followed your steps, but upon pressing enter it searched empty. could you help?

Hi @jackyhl8 - you were wrapping your local variable (LVAR1) in quotes like this - ‘LVAR1’ - this will search for the text string ‘LVAR1’, not the local variable itself.

I’ve renamed the LVAR (it’s good practice to name your LVARs if you can, it makes it a lot easier to read the interaction pane) and removed the quotes and it works. I also added clear filters to the interactions for clicking the ‘clear’ X icon and removing all text from the field.
