Fail to get the tagged parameter

Hello All,

I’m using Revit 2016 and Dynamo 1.3.3 I have an problem when i’m running my script. The script is collecting all the categories and all the elements from the model, but i get the error f"Exception: fail to get the tagged parameter."

I hope that someone could tell me why i’m getting this error.

Hi @marc_franken,

I could see two things:

When you test if the view is a template, the property is e.IsViewTemplate

When you create the iCollection, you need to create en empty List and then use Add to “fill” the list with the ids:

ex_lst = List[ElementId]()
for i in ex:

When I make the changes above, I get an output, but I wont/can’t determain if it’s what you are after :slight_smile:. I’ve attached the dyn that worked for me.

PS: It was done with a simplified version of what you are attempting though.

Hi @MartinSpence

i downloaded your file but i got an error that the file was corrupt. So i made the changes that you said in my own script but i stil get the same error.

thank you for your time and effort. I hope tou haven an another idea


Ah, sorry for the corrupt upload. Don’t know what went wrong.

Regarding the python script, I ran it again with the entire list and I am getting an output. Although I failed to notice, that you are on Revit 2016. Im afraid I don’t have access to that at the moment.

This is in 2018 Dynamo 1.3.2:

Sorry, but I can’t seem to replicate the error you are getting.

Hi, @MartinSpence

thank you for your time again.
I tested the script on an other model and there it worked fine. So i think that the problem is in the first model. So i will look more into that model to find the problem. The script is working now on an model in Reit 2017.
