    <ul>
      <li>
        <strong>Enter type name prefix or pattern</strong>: In this field, type the first few
        characters of the type you want to select.
        <p>The following pattern kinds are supported:
        </p>
        <strong>Wildcards</strong>:<br>
        <ul>
          <li>
            <em>&quot;*&quot;</em> for any string and <em>&quot;?&quot;</em> for any character
          </li>
          <li>
            terminating <em>&quot;&lt;&quot;</em> or <em>&quot; &quot;</em> (space)
            to prevent the automatic prefix matching, e.g. <em>&quot;java.*Access&lt;&quot;</em>
            to match <code>java.util.RandomAccess</code> but not <code>java.security.AccessControlContext</code>
          </li>
        </ul>
        <strong>Camel case</strong>:<br>
        <ul>
          <li>
            <em>&quot;TZ&quot;</em> for types containing <em>&quot;T&quot;</em> and <em>&quot;Z&quot;</em>
            as upper-case letters in camel-case notation, e.g. <code>java.util.TimeZone</code>
          </li>
          <li>
            <em>&quot;NuPoEx&quot;</em> or <em>&quot;NuPo&quot;</em> for types containing <em>&quot;Nu&quot;</em>, <em>&quot;Po&quot;</em>,
            (and <em>&quot;Ex&quot;</em>) as parts in camel-case notation, e.g.
            <code>java.lang.NullPointerException</code>
          </li>
          <li>
              terminating &quot;&lt;&quot; or &quot; &quot; (space) to fix the number of camel-case parts,
              e.g. &quot;HMap&lt;&quot; and &quot;HaMap&lt;&quot;
              match &quot;HashMap&quot; and &quot;HatMapper&quot;, but not
              &quot;HashMapEntry&quot; nor &quot;Hashmap&quot;.
          </li>
        </ul>
        <p>
        Both pattern kinds also support <strong>package prefixes</strong>, e.g.
        <em>&quot;j.util.*Map&lt;&quot;</em>.
        </p>
        <br>
      </li>
      <li>
        <strong>Matching items</strong>: This list displays matches for the pattern you type in the <strong>Enter type name prefix or pattern</strong> field.
        Recently opened types show up in a history section at the top of the list.
      </li>
    </ul>
    <p>
      The behavior of the <strong>Open Type</strong> dialog can be further customized using the dialog menu:
    </p>
    <table border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" summary="Open type options">
      <caption>
        Open Type Options
      </caption>
      <thead>
        <tr>
          <th>
            <p>
              Option
            </p>
          </th>
          <th>
            <p>
              Description
            </p>
          </th>
          <th>
            <p>
              Default
            </p>
          </th>
        </tr>
      </thead>
      <tbody>

          <td valign="top">
            Show Status Line
          </td>
          <td valign="top">
            When selected, the <strong>Open Type</strong> dialog shows an additional bar at the bottom of the dialog which displays the package and containing
            JRE of the selected type
          </td>
          <td valign="top">
