Automating changing Element parameter value


#1

Hi,

I am trying to change the parameter value of detail elements in Revit. I have done that using these nodes but when I work on big files where I have many other elements of the same category that method is not viable anymore. The problem is that the output value is an abstract name with a number. If I want to do the same in Revit manually I will have the axis to the properties of the elements and I can simply change the values by their name while here the value doesn’t show the value name. for example the graphic style output in this shot is a hidden line how can I know that ?? Any suggestions ?? problem02

Try the node Element.Parameters

Thanks this is quite useful… but I was wondering if there is a node where I can instead of adding the parameter value as a Graphic style … . I can just simply generate the same value by typing a string. Does it exist ?? because the name “Hidden” is connected to the value Graphic style in Revit. Something does exactly the opposite of what this node does. hid

The “Get Line Style by Name” node from the archi-lab.com package should do exactly that.
