Is there a way in GDL to find out if the section / elevation is infinite or limited in vertical range, and if limited, what those limits are?
I would imagine something like:
n = REQUEST("Elevation Vertical Range", limitedOnOff, UpperLimit, LowerLimit)
This command doesn't exist, but this hopefully demonstrates what information I'm trying to extract.
This is for use in a story marker that automatically dimensions the distance between stories.
I don't think there is a command to find the section height limits.
But I don't think it matters anyway.
If your storey markers exceed the vertical range, they won't be seen anyway will they?
I do this with the exact info you can extract using the code from the elevator object.
Super easy I swear.
if you select your section / elevation markers you can activate them by simply selecting the horizontal range or vertical range. if you want distance for horizontal range you measure on plan while vertical range you can directly input. image below for your reference. 😎
@Barry Kelly : it's not the story marker per se that I'm trying to control, it's the story-to-story dimension. Given it runs when the story marker does, we get this leftover dimension - see image. I can control this with a user-set limiting of stories, but that's another non-automated setting. I'd like to better control that if I could.
@SenecaDesignLLC: Thanks for that. I've looked through all the code on the elevator part, and it doesn't have anything that I could find that returned vertical limits of the current elevation / section view.
@ryejuan: Thanks, but I'm after a GDL solution.
Ahh I'm with you now, I did not fully understand your goal.
But are you adding the dimensions manually yourself?
I think Bruce is building the dimensions into his markers from the way his post reads.
i see, i understand now. he created his own markers that will automate dimensions instead of him manually doing it. something similar to the way it does with the grid lines. interesting saves you a lot of time. like a toggle that will turn on distance dims and levels. 😁 i hope Graphisoft will incorporate that in future versions. 😁
