Restrict Number of Value List Entries

I noticed on the dropdown for any field in WebDynpro, automatically restricts it to 500 entries to display.

You can override it the 500, but only up to 9999.

What if you have a dropdown list over 9999 ? Is it not possible?

    Hi this is a hypotetical question.

    In fact, it should be your aim to restrict the number of entries rather than enlarge it.

    Do not forget that the more entries you put there, the more loaded your communication to and from the browser becomes.

    In addition do not forget that web dynpro is all about user interface. You should be interested in making it fun and easy for your user to use your application. No one in his right mind would want to go through hundreds or thousands on entries if he can avoid it.

    Are you talking about a Data Dictionary Search Help? If so, 9999 is the upper limit which is imposed by the DDic Search Help framework regardless of Web Dynpro or SAPGUI usage.

      Hi Thomas,

      Yes, Data Dictionary Search Help. I had a question by the user that was questioning the limit. I just wanted to confirm that there is a limit and as the other person replied, we really should not be having a value list over 9999 anyway.

      Thanks
