composite walls

Aussie John

I want place a recess into a composite wall. As such I need the parameters of the external skin of a wall so I can rebuild that part of the wall where the window is.

The global variable "Wall_skins_params" is an array. How do I get the information contained in the array for use in my wall patch?

I presume the window automatically knows which composite wall it is placed in.
thanks

I haven't yet played with the new "WALL_SKINS_PARAMS" global parameter. But from what I read, the global is made up of an array totalling 12 columns and 1-8 rows. The columns indicate the referenced parameter. The rows store the value of the skin parameter (up to 8 skins).

Arrays are distinguished in GDL by: PARAMETER NAME[row#][column#].

For example - the 1st row of the 5th column would be: PARAMETER NAME[1][5].

I Hope this helps.
