Can I access the last part of the metric name in a typeview?

I have EP Agent plugins that generate metrics with names like "EPAgent|Category:# of X used", EPAgent|Category:# of Y used" etc. I cannot predict the metric names. Looking back, this was stupid, and they should have been "EPAgent|Category|X:# used" etc. Had I done that the metric name would be a constant and the typeview could reference the LastSegmentPrefix to pick up the category name.


I want to be able to display a pane that has the metric name and the value. Is there a way to do that? At present the best I can do is to use a graph like: <Graph absolute-specifier="Category\:# of.* used"> and then mouseover to find the metric name. Can I get a list of metric names at the bottom of the graph as one would get in the Management Module Editor?
