I working on a wallclosure for a window with WALL_SKINS_PARAMS which so far works pretty well, the only issue is that I doesn't react to the GLOB_STRUCTURE_DISPLAY setting.
As far as I found there isn't a Parameter in WALL_SKINS_PARAMS which defines whether the layer is Core/Finish/other.
Can this be requested somehow?

 core status

Within WALL_SKINS_PARAMS there is, but you can not differ between "Finish" and "Other", just if Core or not.

This one behaved weirdly when I tested it.
We use the with/without finish to toggle between seeing different layers of Plasterboard for Detail drawings.
So the Finish is the thinnest possible layer in the middle or two Plasterboard layers.
It seems WALL_SKINS_PARAMS returns only 0 (Finish) if the finish is on an outside layer, which makes sense i guess.

Did you check the ac_wall_direction_type, which changes the order from the walls skins in the opposite direction?

Could you please explain a bit about ac_wall_direction_type?
wall direction type; the construction method of the wall, which means the adjustment of the wall body and the reference line: 0 - Right, 1 - Left, 2 - Center (Right), 3 - Center (Left).
Center values mean that the wall is set to 'Center' in the user interface, but the side notation shows how the wall acts internally.

As far as I understand it flips the order of the wall skins.
So if you have a window which is facing left and you flip the wall, the window is still facing left but the order of the skins which you get with WALL_SKINS_PARAMS get's flipped with the wall.

reorder = (AC_Wall_Direction_Type <> 1 & AC_Wall_Direction_Type <> 3)
Combining this with your words, can I interpret that 2 and 4 do not change the order of the walls, but 1 and 3 do change the order of the walls?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean.
I just now that this:
Flips the order in WALL_SKINS_PARAMS.
And with the basic scripts of windoworientation and then trying to go either from 1 to wall_skins_number or the otherway worked for me.
