How to find Elements.Types


#1

Hi all, I’m a really new user on Dynamo. I’m trying to copy an exercise but i can’t find the command: Elements.Types (Input: Element(s) - output: Type(s)); i mean also if i type on the search it doesen’t appear; i’ve already tried to open every command with “type” on its name.


#2

is it the category you want or the type name? your question is a bit unclear…

your graph gives you the type, but as the revit type (a number)


#3

There is also OOTB node Element.GetType.


#4

Yes, i’m really sorry, becuase most of the time i’m only copying from the image! :slight_smile:


#5

Thank you Kulkul! I’ll try it!


#6

Fine… I’m getting even more confused now!


#7

Try to describe what you want… what is it you would like your graph to do for you?

As far as I can see you will get the type, but is that what you want?

  • the OOTB node Element.GetType will give you the same as you get with the present graph

#8

Yes i want to get the type to connect to the “list-input”. What i can’t find is the node itself called “Elements.Type”

Oh, thank you! I’ll look for it!


#9

I might have misunderstood you… are you searching for the node Element.Types since you dont have the package?

in that case, use @Kulkul suggestion with the Element.GetType OOTB node


#10

Ok! Thank you agaim, also for the patience! :slight_smile:


#11

remember to give @Kulkul the credit for solving the problem (mark it as solved) :slight_smile:

COuld not find it.


#13

OK, I got it.
In Dynamo 1.32 its name is Elements.Type

OOTB: OUt of the box.


#14

The name is JUST: Type
