appending a folder to DestinationFolder

I need to append a folder to a custom destination path returned by the dialog DestinationFolder. Is there an easy way to do this in the IDE?

The resulting path would be:

custom_path/my_appended_folder/my_product_install_folder/

I figured out how to do this, but was surprised to find out via the log file that there were many internal properties containing the install path I did not know about that also had to be modified. When my first install failed to install everything in the appended folder, I found in the install log many other paths being setup to what looked like feature or component named properties. Once I added code to modify all the ones in the log file, the next install worked as expected.
