Filtering the Category selection property



Is it possible to restrict the Category selection property to only allow the user to select categories of a particular name?

For example, if I set up a parent category called Person, and then I define children of this (e.g. Doctor, Fireman, Teacher), can I get the Category selection property to only display the categories within the Person parent and to ignore all other exisiting categories?

I hope I'm making sense!

I had a solution for this some time back:

However, if you are using CMS 6 I suggest you use Property Settings to save a setting for the root category rather than to infer it from the property name like I did back then.

A also wrote a blog about this a while back Basicly what you can do here is to make one branch of your category tree selecteble and even add on the fly
