My first post here 🙂
Im wondering if anyone has been able to do the above...?
I use complex profile beam tool to create a dropped edge beam (Australian Resi Housing) and simply want to report the offset modifier value
Simply place some autotext for the profile modifier you want.
Select that text and then 'save as a library part > label'.
It will create a label for you and if you open the script, you will see the code for the text.
It seems it refers to the modifiers by a GUID rather than a name.
If you just need to show the modifier value, you can just use an autotext label and call up the modifier you want.
Add extra descriptive text and save as a favourite for future use.
Saves you having to create your own label.
But if you are creating your own label and need to use the value from the modifiers, maybe you need to look at some of these requests?
n = REQUEST ("Properties_Of_Parent", propertyType, parentProperties)
n = REQUEST ("Property_Value_Of_Parent", "id", type, dim1, dim2, propertyValues)
n = REQUEST ("Property_Name", "id", typeName, groupName, propertyName)
I have not really looked into these, but maybe one of those (or some other request) will allow you to find the modifier properties?
Whether you can use the values of these modifier properties, I am not sure, or maybe you can still only just output their value.
