Unless you are REALLY familiar with GDL coding, adding new parameters or attributes is not a viable endevour.


What are you wanting to achieve?

The quick and dirty way of doing it owuld be to create a PropertySet and add a property to all your doors. But again...that completely depends on what you want to do 🙂

Do you want to (1) add this parameter to a library element or just (2) add an additional property which can be assigned to doors? If 2, then I would suggest you read this Help pages:
