[SOLVED] How to get the Reserved status of an Attribute

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi - how can I cn the Reserve/Lock status of an Attribute (a Surface in particular). The following code only seems to work for Elements, not Attributes.
API_LockableStatus lockableStatus = ACAPI_TeamworkControl_GetLockableStatus (attrib.header.guid);
Thanks

Hi Paul,

Teamwork_Control example Add-On shows how to handle reservation of elements and attributes too.

Here is the solution for your problem: (copied from Teamwork_Control example Add-On)
// ---------------------------------- Types ------------------------------------

Thanks Tibor.

I am interested in getting the reserved status of a specific Surface. I cannot see how that is possible via the API. Perhaps I am missing something.

How can ACAPI_TeamworkControl_GetLockableStatus () be used for a specific surface pls?

Thanks

Paul

Reservation status belongs to an Attribute set, not a specific attribute.
So it's not possible to lock only one specific attribute. Instead of that you should lock the related attribute set.

You can't lock only one specific surface on the ArchiCAD UserInterface also, can you?

Yes, you are right. My understanding of how reserving worked was wrong. Thank you for resolving this.
