Hi ,

Is there a way to mandate search field that searches through all columns in grid, to instantly affect the rows instead of pressing enter?

Hi Albert,  

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

Bind a keyup event on the search toolbar element. In the dataBound event, bind a keyup event to the toolbar element. Later, in the search element handler call the search method of the Grid. Refer to the following code example.  

    import { render } from 'react-dom'; 
import './index.css'; 
import * as React from 'react'; 
import { GridComponent, ColumnsDirective, ColumnDirective, Page, Toolbar, Inject } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids'; 
import { categoryData } from './data'; 
import { SampleBase } from './sample-base'; 
export class Searching extends SampleBase { 
    constructor() { 
        this.toolbarOptions = ['Search']; 
    dataBound() { 
      const proxy = this; 
      this.element.querySelector('#' + this.element.getAttribute('id') + '_searchbar').addEventListener('keyup', function(e){ 
    render() { 
        return (<div className='control-pane'> 
                <div className='control-section row'> 
                    <GridComponent dataSource={categoryData} toolbar={this.toolbarOptions} dataBound={this.dataBound} allowPaging={true}> 
                   . .. 
                     . . . . 
                        <Inject services={[Toolbar, Page]}/> 
render(<Searching />, document.getElementById('sample')); 

We have prepared a sample that can be referred here.
