Clicking a button When the Enter key is pressed on a particular textbox

I have a textbox used to search a list view.  However by default hitting Enter on a textbox does nothing.

I need to click an existing button when people hit enter while on that search textbox.
I tried this JS

<script> $('[name="Search Box"]').keyup(function(event) { if (event.keyCode == 13) { $('[name="Refresh"]').click(); } }); </script>

("Search Box" being the name of the textbox, and Refresh being the name of the button, however I have tried it several times and the button does not get clicked when I hit enter. I have also tried .keypress instead of .keyup and neither work. The Data label is set to literal)


I know this has been asked before but the above was the solution, and it is not working for me.

Yes, The datalabel is literal and not visible.

It is not executing though, or at least not clicking the button when I hit enter while typing in the textbox.
I have no idea why. It should work.

My bad, it was the button name that was wrong..
It was "Refresh_Button" not "Refresh"
