Highlight elements in active view

Hi guys!

I want to Dynamo to highlight a certain element. So far I have used “Highlight Elements in View” from the JBE package. But I this gives the ID’s (atleast that is was it says). Can you access the visibility and graphics “filter” option from Dynamo in any way? Anywho this is how far I am so far:

Look for a node called “Element.OverrideColorInView” or something like that.

Hi @arbazhamayun

Are you looking for something like this?

YES exactly something like that. I have the list of elements. All I need is a way to highlight them :slight_smile:

@arbazhamayun Below is the Python code you can just connect your list of elements to highlight:

import clr

clr.AddReference("RevitServices")
import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager
from System.Collections.Generic import *

clr.AddReference("RevitAPI")
import Autodesk
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument
uiapp = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentUIApplication
app = uiapp.Application
uidoc=DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentUIApplication.ActiveUIDocument

highlight = []
elements = UnwrapElement(IN[0])
elementsel = uidoc.Selection
result = []

for i in elements:
	highlight.append(i.Id)
	Icollection = List[ElementId](highlight)
	elementsel.SetElementIds(Icollection)
	result.append("Success")
OUT = result

Check your input. If the elements input is only a single item, try turning it into a list first using a list.create node.
