Got different values of type parameter for the same element

Hi, I was trying to get the value of the type parameter of an element in the model, but it turned out that the value I got (i.e., Family Type: Beam-600x750mm, Family: Beam-RC-Rectangular) was different from the true value (i.e., Beam-600x750mm), as the picture below shows. Does anyone know the reason and how to fix it? Thanks!

Hi @Howie
Because it gives you the family type and the family, separated by a coma.
If you want only the family type you can get it with Element.Name or FamilyType.Name, connected to your All Elements of Category node.
