Filter a DataTable by information entered into a textbox

Here is my user interface: 

2018-10-15 14_01_51-Microsoft Edge.pngI would like the user to be able to start typing a barcode in the text field on the left, and have the databtale filter and return only results which have a barcode matching the text entered into that field. 

 

E.g. the user starts typing 930

 

and the results in the DataTable change to only list records with a barcode starting with 930. 

 

I have done some reading, but it's not clear to me how to do this, as most filtering examples deal with a gallery. I should point out that the data for the DataTable is collected in a previous screen, and displayed there, as well as this screen. I am happy to do a refresh or a re-collect in this screen if required? Just not sure how to get it working.

If(
    IsEmpty(TextInputFilterBarcode),
    selectedStoreOutOfStockCollection,
    Filter(
        selectedStoreOutOfStockCollection,
        StartsWith(
            Text(Barcode),
            TextInputFilterBarcode.Text
        )
    )
)

Re: Filter a DataTable by information entered into a textbox

I got this to work with the following (yay!)

 

Filter(selectedStoreOutOfStockCollection,StartsWith(Text(Barcode),TextInputFilterBarcode.Text))

However, I need to ensure that if nothing is entered into the text box, there is no filtering applied. I imagine this would be an IF statement of some kind, but not really sure.
