Dropdown of Available Parameters in a Family

This feels really dumb, but I’ve been trying to figure this out for an hour and I can’t find anything. Is there a node similar to the Get BipParameter Name, but for user created parameters for families? I’m wanting to make a script as simple to use as possible for my coworkers who don’t know how to use Dynamo, and I figured having a drop down rather than having them manually typing a parameter name into a string and then connecting that to the Element.GetParameterValueByName would make things just a bit easier.

Again, I feel like I’m being dumb and missing something right in front of me. Help is appreciated.


Hi @mhiser

With the Data-Shapes package you can create User Interfaces where you can create Dropdown (& much more) inputs.

If you search around on the forum I’m sure you can find a lot of information on how to do that. If you still have some specific questions after that don’t hesitate to post again :slight_smile:

Thank you! Digging into it now.
