The FeedInput component naturally inserts a new line when you press Enter. I wouldn't suggest changing this default behavior, however if your application still requires onFocus to be fired when enter is pressed on input area, here's how it can be achived:

Add this onAfterRendering method to your View Controller:


onAfterRendering : function () {
    //note: replace 'myFeedInputID' with ID of FeedInput component
    let myFeedInput = this.byId('myFeedInputID');
    let dom = myFeedInput.getFocusDomRef();
    if (dom) {
        dom.addEventListener('keypress', (evt) => {
            if ((evt.keyCode || evt.which) == 13) {
                if (evt.preventDefault)
                // you can also call your custom code directly here (instead of firing post event)


Note that the provided code should be executed only after the FeedInput component has been rendered. To ensure this, I've wrapped the code inside the onAfterRendering method of the view controller.
