Hi All

Appreciate any help on the issue below.


I need a Bar chart to be filtered based on input from two different drop downlists (Image illustrates desired output).

I do not know how to get the chart to respond to inputs from two controls.

(In essence it should do the same work a time slider does, but don't know the inner workings of a slider so cant replicate the effect)


Could someone please shed some light on this.


FYI: The two dropdows are cascading: they are supposed to be used to specify a range.

So if in the the first dropdown, you select 5...the second dropdown would should you the remained of the months (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)

When the user selects a month in the 2nd dropdown(for example '9'), the chart should show the range of months from 5 to 9.


Thanks a ton!
