Need advice for how to create the user configuration for a custom python macro

RobertF

I have created a macro (using Python) to create a crosstab table (report object) with multi-level attributes on the columns and/or rows as well as multiple metrics.  What I am struggling with is how to create the configuration options that will do two things:

 

1.  If the user selects a dataset column for presentation on the rows, i want it to unselect the dataset columns that is selected for the rows (mutually exclusive).  How would I go about implementing that action.

 

2.  When the user is selecting the metric(s), they can also choose the aggregation function.  I was thinking of an interface like the summarize tool.

 

What is the best way to approach this?  Anyone have something built that I can modify?

 

Thanks
