How to designing a cascading select question (choice filter) within a matrix question?

How to use the choice_filter on a matrix question? The same filter working for a select multiple data does not work on a matrix question. Does anybody have an example?

Is that also holding for rating questions?

In the choices tab of your xlsform:

In the settings tab of your xlsform:
