How to add a parameter for fixed or openable in schedules?

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi!

Does anyone knows how to get the parameter for openable or fixed in to the window schedules? I tried the orientation parameter but it was a bit strange because even though the window is fixed the schedule shows it as openable.

An other question is about the window settings. If I use the command Mirror, some of the settings is getting mirrored such as "door swing direction" and the side of "series connection". Should it be that way?


.. and a third one, does anyone have a recommendation of some site for translating this kind of english terms? Google translate can't really handle it

Thanks!

BUMP

I have the same problem.
Fixed window (W Fixed 16) shows a L/R orientation in window schedule.

The L/R orientations that you are using in your schedules are simply telling you which way you placed the window with the last click of the mouse as you choose the window reveal side.
i.e. did you pick to the left side of centre or the right with the last mouse click.

If you want a true opening value then you will need to have it scripted in your window (if it isn't already) to say whether it is fixed or openable or in more detail if it opens on the left or the right or both (or none).
Basically you will need to script into your window a parameter that gives you the output you want.
It could be something that you have to manually input a value yourself (you may as well just add a text field to the schedule and add it there) or you can make the parameter automatic based on the configuration of your window settings - but you will need a knowledge of GDL to do this.

Thanks Barry.
I would have thought something so fundamental to
a window schedule would be easier to accomplish.
