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

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
