Search input onchange causes crashing – how to make it a button to submit search

I have an app in MeteorJS, which makes use of React (I am ok with JavaScript, but am on a learning curve starting with React). The current search input makes use of the onchange function of the input box BUT this is actually not desired as this slows the app considerably – making requests every time the user types.

I basically want the input to be basic input and then have a button to trigger the search.

Inline code, for calling the searchinput where needed;

<div className="col-md-4 col-xs-12" style={disabledStyling.control}>
    <SearchInput placeholder="Search" onChange={this.filterGames} value={filter} />

searchinput component;

import PropTypes from 'prop-types';
import Icon from '../Icon';
import Styles from './styles';

const SearchInput = ({ placeholder, value, onChange }) => (
  <Styles.SearchInput className="SearchInput">
    <Icon iconStyle="solid" icon="search" />

SearchInput.defaultProps = {
  placeholder: 'Search...',
  value: '',

SearchInput.propTypes = {
  placeholder: PropTypes.string,
  value: PropTypes.string,
  onChange: PropTypes.func.isRequired,

export default SearchInput;

Hoping you all could help 😉
