Workspace Type in ToolValidator Class

I'm building a custom script tool at the moment and need the dialog box to behave in a certain way:

One of the input parameters is the output workspace.
Depending on the users choice of either using a geodatabase or a file system (folder) to store the output features, I want the dialog box to enable/disable a boolean parameter which represents the choice of creating a relationship class between the outputs that is only available in a geodatabase environment.

I am aware that I could update the filter list for the workspace parameter depending on the boolean parameters value but I want to do it the other way around.

The software is ArcMap 10.1 and Python 2.7.

I would be very grateful for any solutions or ideas!
