Door label by door leaf

jc4d
Expert

Hi,

 

I have a double door but I would like to see each leaf of the door sizes separated.

This is what I have currently:

But I would like to see it this dimensions on the label and not the total:

Is it possible?

 

Cheers.

Whatever solution you end up using, keep the door size display on the Floor Plan because that it the information people using the Plans will find most useful.  Show the different widths of the door panels in the Door Schedule or Door Legend.  On Floor Plans and Elevations I like to use a Marker and a Lable for Doors and Windows.   Markers for ID, Lable for Size.   There was a time when I did it the other way around.  The reason to do it that way is because they don't have a Marker I like that will do both the way I want it.

Thank you for your reply, here in Finland we use the method that display both door panels, and the office has asked me if there is a solution for it to show it on the floor plan.

Regardin on displaying it on the schedule or on the door legeend, how can it be done?

Solution

I assume the door leaf sizes are parameters in the door object.

 

A label can access these parameters, but it has to be scripted (GDL) specifically to do so.

 

However in your schedule you can directly access the parameters of an object.

In the schedule settings you need to add a field/s for the door leaf/s.

Click on the arrow next to 'Add Fields' button and choose 'Library Part Parameters'.

Then browse for the door object and find the parameter for the door leaf.

Repeat if there is a second parameter for the other leaf.

Is there a place where I can look how to access those parameters via GDL to use a label for it?
I have created GDL objects in the past, so I know my way a little bit around.

You need to request the parameter value...

 

 

rrr=REQUEST ("ASSOCLP_PARVALUE", "parameter_name_here", name_or_index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, p_values)

 

 

The value of the parameter will be in p_values.

 

Don't forget if the parameter is a number, you will need to convert it to a string to use as text in the label.
