How to allow the use of the child_of operator for users ?

Hi all,

My problem appear when I did a search on the partners using as filter criteria category of partner.

When I do this the filter work only on the category but not on the mothers categories. example:
Partner 1 is part of the category "Cat A / Cat B / Cat C"
Partner 2 is part of the category "Cat A"
If I made ​​a filter "category_id = Cat A" only partner 2 appear (same with the operator "contain").

To solve this problem I create a filter in the partner search view (xml) that use child_of operator. For example, if I create a filter "category_id child_of Cat A" my two partners emerge : that's what I want.

The disadvantage with this solution is that I should create filters for all categories ("category_id child_of Cat A", "category_id child_of Cat B", etc.) to allow users the ability to make multi-criteria searches . That is why I would like to use the operator "child_of" in my search panel.

Someone has an idea to solve this problem ?
