I have created several view types and am wondering if there is a way to access them in Dynamo. For example, I want to use the Filter by Boolean Mask node to narrow a list down to my “Code Plans” views. See the image below for Types of my Floor Plan views.
Wow. This list is quite unorganized, even when I filter down to only Floor Plan views. For each list of level 2 items the parameters are in a different order. For one item the Type Name is index 36, for another it is index 51. Furthermore, most of the views don’t have values for Family, Type, Type Name, Family and Type, etc.
I see, I did not know of that node before now.
That said, how can I use this node to filter by this parameter? I don’t see a way to connect it to the GetParameterValueByName node, nor how to use it to get a list of booleans for the FilterByBooleanMask node.
This node gives me the list of available View Types, yes, but I do not see a way to tell Dynamo that I am looking for this parameter.
I want a list which provides the Type name of my views. So instead of “ViewFamilyType” in the image above, I’d like to have a list which says, for example, “Code Plan”, “50 Phase”, “30 Phase”, “Electrical”, “Code Plan”, etc.
That’s getting there, now the Type names are showing up. The blank indices are sticking around though, even after using the Clean node. Evidently they are not empty items but represent some views. How do I get rid of these blank items?
