Can one configuration option be used to show/hide other configurations options?

I am trying to automate creation of solids, sections & developments for students for a subject they have.

I want them to be able to select type of solid like prism, pyramid, cylinder & cone. Based on the solid selected I want the additional configurations like height, base edge length etc to be made visible in case of 1st two & circle radius in case of the last two.

here's the file I am trying to achieve this with.

    Not with configurations but you could do it with FeatureScript

    This is an IR that we would incorporate into every one of our configurations if implemented.
