Parameterized lookup for Portlets

We have developed a lot of portlets in our environment, majority are using two filters:

Directorate

Program

A Directorate can have many Programs, and the users still want to be able to filter by Directorate and/or Program.

 

The question now has been asked, if the Directorate filter is entered, is there a way to automatically show only those Programs that belong to the Directorate - ie the directorate id is automatically passed to the Program Filter.

 

This can be done using Object lookups, but I can not see how to achieve this for Portlet Filters.

 

Appreciate that I could modify the Program Lookup to include additional filtering to the Directorate, but it still won't be automatically updated from the Directorate filter, and in addition, staff still want to be able to filter by Directorate independently.

 

The question is, for PORTLETS, can the Directorate Filter value be passed to the Program Filter?
