Change color object depending on IFC property value

Hi to everyone!!!

I'm a newbie with the archicad , nowadays I'm envolved in a BIM project and i have a question. I have a cube with an IFC property wich takes mumeric values. I would like to change the colour of the item depending on the value of this property. I was going to do it with graphics overwrites but i've just noticed it doesn't work with IFC properties.

Another option is show a Text / Label with the property value. Im able to show a Label with the value, but it only works in 2D.

Is this possible? Ill really appreciate any kind of help.

Thx a lot

Labels should show in elevations and sections as well - just not 3D views.

Do you have to use an IFC property?
I know GO rules can use standard properties (based on the classification).
It is all a bit new to me but if you can use the classification properties you should be able to set up the rules you want.
