Is it possible to call the area of the label linked in FILL with call or request from other gdl?

Short answer - no.

 

Longer answer - the label does not have an area, it get the value from the fill and just reports it.

Labels can only be associated to one element.

GDL objects (excluding labels) can not directly query any other objects or elements.

 

What are you trying to do?

I'm trying to write a GDL for the sale area table.
The dedicated areas A to H are filled with fill and connected with labels to increase the area.
make it show up.
And you must bring the entire shared area.
When you create an area table, do you create it only as an input?
Or are you using a method to get data?

Are you trying to do something like this other poster was doing?

Trying to compare individual areas with an overall area?

I read this post
It's not what I want.
Zones are used for each room area.
However, we do not use the area for each type.
Just create a dedicated area and a common area for each type with Fill.
(Do you make these zones with the "zone tool"?)

In this way, the total area for each floor and the common area for each floor are created and summed to obtain the total common area.

You can use zones or fills.

They both have the ability to give you an area.

Personally I use fills to calculate areas.

 

But still, objects can not interact with fills.

Only labels and schedules can give you information about the fills.
