I was using Primefaces 2 and decided to upgrade to version 3.2. It was very nice, except for one big thing! The filterEvent attribute seems to no longer exist.
Before upgrading, I used to code this way:
filterEvent no longer exist and, by what I tested, the component is always considering onKeyUp. But when my application opens a list with thousands of registers it becomes frustrating that each time a caracter is typed on the filter field all the result (and the datatable) is once again rerendered. It would be perfect if the typed information was applied to the search only after the field has lost its focus or with some special key like Enter or Tab.
Something simpler (like was possible in the Primefaces 2) would be much better.
And I need to use the filter that are avaliable in the datatable component because my customer is very concerned with the space that the elements use on the screen, that is, creating a separate panel with filtering field and a "Search" button is not an option.
