When you create your component that you want to serve as a Search Help, be sure to add the Web Dynpro Interface IWD_VALUE_HELP. You must also implement the Method of the Component Controller - SET_VALUE_HELP_LISTENER (added by the above mentioned interface).

In the component where you want to use this search help - add a component usage (just like you would for an ALV) except for the above custom component you created to serve as a Search Help. Then for the properites of the context attribute that you want to attach the search help, Change the Input Help Mode to Freely Programmed. You will then get a new property called Input Help Component Usage. Simply choose the name of the component usage you just created.

Hi Sireehsa,

I had similar requirement in my project. I had developed independent component and wanted to attach it as a input help to one of the fields. I couldn't find any way to attach it as an input help. So I created one button next to the input field and called that component in the event of that button. It can be done as a last option.
