The following code sample shows how to make the Search Panel search for a string that contains a space character without the need to specify this string in quotation marks:

    SearchString="Alex Mercer" SearchPanelAllowFilter="False"/> 
void TableView_SearchStringToFilterCriteria(object sender, SearchStringToFilterCriteriaEventArgs e) {
    e.Filter = CriteriaOperator.Parse(string.Format("Contains([Name], '{0}')", e.SearchString));

If you handle the DataViewBase.SearchStringToFilterCriteria event and do not specify the SearchStringToFilterCriteriaEventArgs.Filter property, the GridControl does not search items.
