Default Different parameter categories not recognized

In the 'Properties' region of my strategy, it appears that using a Category other than 'Parameter' is not recognized by Ninja. I use this technique all the time in Indicators and it works well to organize the different parameters. When I tried the same technique in a strategy, the parameter did not show up at all.

Here is the code that apparently is NOT being recognized:
[Category("My Parameters: group 1")]
[Gui.Design.DisplayName("My parm name")]
public bool MyParmName
    get { return myParmName; }
    set { myParmName = value; }
Is anything wrong with this code?

If this is, in fact, not supported, why not?

If not, please add this ability.

Gary, this is currently not supported for strategies in NinjaTrader 6.5.

It works the same as for indicators in NinjaTrader 7 - http://www.ninjatrader.com/webnew/NT7/NinjaTrader7.html
