door labels making symbols out of door properties

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi,

I searched for this but couldnt find an answer.

If i use the Archicad door label tool for the fire rating and self shutting mechanism i have to select it for every door.

Is there a way to make a label that activates accordingly to a door property. In the Dutch archicad I am have the self shttuing as "Zelfsluitend"

IF property Zelfsluitend=1 THEN

rec2 bla bla bla bla

ENDIF

This doesnt work but how can i get the label to connect to the door property?

Thanks in advance

I have moved this topic to the GDL forum because this is more of a GDL question than a Construction Documentation question.

So, to achieve this, you need to have GDL knowledge. In the 2D Script of the Label, you need to use either of the following 2 GDL commands (Page 501 of the GDL Reference Guide) :
n = REQUEST ("ASSOCLP_PARVALUE", expr, name_or_index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, p_values)

or
n = REQUEST ("ASSOCLP_PARVALUE_WITH_DESCRIPTION", expr, name_or_index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, p_values_and_descriptions)

This command can return the value of that parameter of the Door you want into the Label. Then depending on the value returned, the 2D of the Label can be or not be generated.
