Responding to a Return key press in SearchFooter

I want to respond to a Return as a key press in the search footer.  It seems it would be a natural work flow for the user to type a few letter and when the desired name is located then press the Enter key to start work on that employee.  But I haven't found any searchfooter events that will do this.  Does anyone know how this might be done or does it need to be submitted as a feature suggestion?



It's unclear which search footer you are referring to, can you explain a bit more in detail?

Kind Regards,
