You can select an operator and enter a value in the input field(s). The operators that are displayed depend on the data type of the column.

Tab Order

You can globally disable value help from the tab order. While tabbing through elements on the user interface (UI) you can choose to skip value helps. You can enable this by choosing Start of the navigation path Personalization Next navigation step Personalize Settings Next navigation step Tab Order Definition Mode End of the navigation path and selecting the Globally disable value help from tab sequence checkbox.
