[jquery] Trigger an event on `click` and `enter`

I have a searchbox on my site that. Currently, users must click the submit button next to the box to search via jquery's post. I would like to let users also press enter to search. How can i do this?

JQUERY:

$('document').ready(function(){
    $('#searchButton').click(function(){
        var search = $('#usersSearch').val();
        $.post('../searchusers.php',{search: search},function(response){
            $('#userSearchResultsTable').html(response);
        });
    });
});

HTML:

<input type='text' id='usersSearch'  /><input type='button' id='searchButton' value='search' />

The answer is


Use keypress event on usersSearch textbox and look for Enter button. If enter button is pressed then trigger the search button click event which will do the rest of work. Try this.

$('document').ready(function(){
    $('#searchButton').click(function(){
        var search = $('#usersSearch').val();
        $.post('../searchusers.php',{search: search},function(response){
            $('#userSearchResultsTable').html(response);
        });
    })
    $('#usersSearch').keypress(function(e){
        if(e.which == 13){//Enter key pressed
            $('#searchButton').click();//Trigger search button click event
        }
    });

});
