You use the dialog type of an elementary search help to define how the hit list is displayed when the input help is called.
You can specify one of the following dialog types for an elementary search help:
The hit list is immediately displayed when the input help is called. This is rational only if the hit list contains a few entries.
The dialog window for restricting values is offered immediately. Choose this option if the list of possible entries is large. If the user limits the amount of data to be processed, the hit list becomes more comprehensible and the system load during value selection is reduced.
If the hit list contains less than 100 entries, it is displayed immediately. If the hit list contains more than 100 entries, the system displays the dialog box for restricting values.
