Search help control size

Hi,

I find it rather annoying and I think it used to be better:

Calling any (user-defined) search help using F4 I always get a dialog control almost covering the full screen height - regardless of the number of entries shown.

Is there any way, i.e. in the search help exit DIS step to control the size of the control created?

Could not find it in the forum.

Thanx for useful hints.

Regards,

Clemens

There are two related posts that suggest that it's not feasible:

It might be possible in a custom report if you program F4 call yourself.

Not satisfying.

Sorry to have disappointed you.

If my assumption that you define a custom search help but then call it by using standard SAP means (e.g. via dictionary reference) is correct, you might want to send a message to SAP regarding this.

Otherwise, a modification might also be an option. Have you tried debugging to find out what exactly SAP uses to call the search help?

Hello ,

There is a hardcoded constant limit for dialog size under fm "TABCONTROL_SH_PREPARE_DIALOGS"

you can adjust your dialog size with enhancement at end of fm by changing value width.
