Documentation about hierarchies


I'm trying to implement natural hierachies with QV 10 (f.e. Year-Quarter-Month or Country-Region-City) and I'm searching some articles or samples.

In particular, for the temporal hiearchy Year-Quarter-Month (read from a Calendar or Time table) can I create only an unique list box as a tree view to select a year and expand the quarters and then the month? How?

In the graph that shows f.e. the invoices amount, do I organize the temporal dimension by creating a drill-down group?

Many thanks for your suggest.

Hi, you could that, look at the hierarchy function, that function is also used in the "What's New" sample that comes with QV.

You might find, though, that just putting Year, Month, etc as simple selectors works just as well or even better.
