comment Hierarchical multi-state tree check box selection
Perhaps the region/country stuff was a bad example. In may case this selector type is required in report generators. The parent nodes can contain data itself and therefore you can selected without meaning to select the items below too. Changing the architecture isn't so easy, because it is already there. We try to find a nicer way to select items instead of scrolling to the whole list every time.

comment Hierarchical multi-state tree check box selection
That's indeed a nice approach. Even if the region/country stuff was just an example. In our application we use many different types of trees and users can build up trees in different ways. Perhaps i have to step back and find a totally different approach like yours.

I had some bad experience with miller columns. We used it in a product 2 years ago and nearby no user really understand how it works. Unless they are not comming from Unix or Mac OS X, mostly no user have seen them before. Specially windows users asked us so many times how this should work :-(
