Window Cavity Closure with Windows Turned Off

The GS window will turn the wall skins in, even with the windows turned off in the MVO. How does it do this? I thought none of the window scripts would run if windows were turned off in the MVO.

I think the scripts will still run but there should be an IF statement that checks a LIbraryGlobal.
The wall skins must be scripted outside of the IF statement.

No - the scripts won't run if the MVO is turned off. With all the window and door parts I've scripted, I've never had to put in an IF statement for MVO override...Archicad deals with the visibility outside of the part.

It might have something to do with the WALLHOLE2 command.

It seems the WALL...2 commands are still executed even when the MVO has the doors/windows turned off. That's:
WALLHOLE2, WALLLINE2, WALLBLOCK2 etc.

This is very useful to know!

Next question: how do I get these WALLBLOCK2 commands to respond to the Graphic Overrides? I presume it would be a setting in the fill command somewhere.

For future reference: it seems the WALLBLOCK2 and WALLBLOCK2{2} commands will do this automatically. Don't know how to control this though, as setting the fillcategory to 0 (Draft) or 2 (Cover) in the WALLBLOCK2{2} command doesn't seem to make any difference...it's always treated as a cut fill.

I guess it inherits this status from the wall it's placed into?
