Property manager autotext in GDL

Domagoj Lukinic
Booster

Hi all, 

I know you can implement property manager autotext in gdl by adding poperty_id of autotext.

I get the ID by saving label with that autotext i a new object. I there a way to get id of autotext by not saving labels constantly?

And is there a way to use autotexts in IF conditions?

example:

if  poperty_id="30" then gosub "wall 30":

if  poperty_id="60" then gosub "wall 60":

if  poperty_id="90" then gosub "wall 90":

P.S.

I am working on a label for fire resistance, when you put a label on a wall label geometry has to change based on the autotext.

Autotext contains duration of fire resistance like REI-30,REI-60,REI-90

Hi,

 

GDL doesn't see the value of an autotext, so you can't use them as parameters.

You can get values of properties: https://gdl.graphisoft.com/tips-and-tricks/display-properties-with-labels

Non-built-in properties have a project-specific ID, so you can't hardcode them in the GDL script, the user has to select the property on the UI. Alternatively the code can try to match a fixed property name if localization is not an issue.
