Search Help F4 has limit of 500 etries in result list - How to extend it?

Hi experts,

I have following search help on Z attribute of the BuilHeader node:



ls_map TYPE if_bsp_wd_valuehelp_f4descr=>gtype_param_mapping,

lt_inmap TYPE if_bsp_wd_valuehelp_f4descr=>gtype_param_mapping_tab,

lt_outmap TYPE if_bsp_wd_valuehelp_f4descr=>gtype_param_mapping_tab.

ls_map-context_attr = 'STRUCT.ZREGION'.

ls_map-f4_attr = 'ZREGION'.

append ls_map TO: lt_outmap, lt_inmap.

CREATE OBJECT rv_valuehelp_descriptor TYPE cl_bsp_wd_valuehelp_f4descr


iv_help_id = 'ZREGION_SH' "#EC NOTEXT

iv_help_id_kind = if_bsp_wd_valuehelp_f4descr=>help_id_kind_name

iv_input_mapping = lt_inmap

iv_output_mapping = lt_outmap.


Search help 'ZREGION_SH' is searching by the key of z table (table contains key and description columns).

The search result in F4 pop up is limited to 500 results. Customer wants to see more results...

Would you like to tell me if there is some way to extend the search result?

Thank you in advance

    This a standard limit for search help.

    If you really want to display more than 500 entries (but for me it makes no sense to choose from a list of 500 entries) you need to create your own selection popup.

    You could also use a Dropdown list box but you have to much entries (causes bad performance).
