Getting Legend Grouping/Category Value for URL_REDIRECT on Legend Value

I am using the 2.2.1.r22x_.... version of Birt and I have most things working
but I was trying to create a drilldown based on the legend information for a 2d
bar chart.
How do I get the current clicked "category" value to use with in the script.
I had set up the Optional Y Series Grouping to create the legend values.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

    Hi scooter,

    You should be able to get drilldown through the legend interactivity by selecting the Hyperlink action... and the press the Edit Base URL button. Here you can decide to drill to a bookmark our outside the report to another URL. If you select URI and then the Expression Builder button, you should be able to select your category field... and use it in an expression to create the drill through URL.

    If you are drilling into another BIRT report, then select Drill-through and you can select the category field as the parameter for the next report.
