How to "navigate back up the hierarchy" in PI Vision

Hi folks!


Let's say I have an AF hierarchy with three levels:

- Overview

     - Area1

          - Equipment1

          - Equipment2

          - Equipment3

     - Area2

          - Equipment4

          - Equipment5


I have a PI Vision Overview display with some data for all areas. If I click on one of the areas' symbols, I open another display with specific data to that area and all its equipments.

I can go further down, clicking on one of the equipments and opening another display with more detailed data for that specific equipment.

All easy so far!


Now, I want to configure a "back" button which will take me back to the "area" display, setting the current parent area path as the context.

Pretty straightforward:

If I am on Area1, go down to Equipment1 and then click "back", I want to go back to Area1.

If I am on Area2, go down to Equipment4 and then click "back", I want to go back to Area2.


I couldn't get this done. Is it possible?

Something like this below would be nice:
