Access to window .dll

Hi,

I'd like to add a simple cross (corner to corner) to a window in elevation (as we draw windows in elevations by hand/flatcad...). Can I do this for the empty opening? I have managed to make the plan show as a cross but don't know how to do it in elevation. There should be a simple on/off checkbox "show/hide cross".

Cheers.

Are you looking for a solution in GDL, or do you plan to produce an API-based solution?

Hi Ralph,
I think I know the issue now. I would like the GDL solution and we can "cheat" in our own swedish basic window favourites and add a parameter that draws the cross. Otherwise it has to go into the code of the GS window and that won't happen I guess. I will try a "cheat" solution and make an extra window/door opening for structural engineers.
Thanks for your reply!
Cheers,
Mats
