Is there a way in the new designer tool in WF8203 (i think this is referred to as V4 page designer) to chain the controls together?

I can add filters into it using their auto filter tool when i load the procedures but i can't seem to chain the controls together. Any ideas?

Designer page as well as Autoprompt automatically chain parameters if they are in the same hierarchy. For instance, if your master file has a Dimension View Folder of Geography in which you've defined COUNTRY-> STATE->CITY as a hierarchy, then when you create a report with COUNTERY, STATE and CITY as parameters, Designer will chain them together. To my knowledge there isn't any other way to chain parameters in the designer.

I'm bringing this discussion back to light. IBI has confirmed this appears to be the only way to chain parameters in the designer now.

With this in mine, anyone come up with some clever solutions to chaining parameters using the dimension view?
