Pop up at beginning of every new project?

How to make a pop up in revit asking for number and dimensions of grids and levels at the beginning of every new project?

Hi @uaftab.cem19

I’m not sure that it’s possible to have Dynamo request that everytime a new project is started unfortunately.

You could definitely make a dynamo graph to ask how many levels and grids you want and automate the creation there, however you would need to start Dynamo manually and open your graph.

The closest thing I can think of to having the automation you’re after is how Revit add-ins are initialised at the start up of Revit itself. Though that would be programmed in C# using the IExternalApplication class. Or maybe some event handling around new projects (Anyone?). You should look at the Revit SDK, the developer centre of Revit help or the Revit API forums for more info on that.

Hope this helps

Cheers, Pete

Thanks thats very helpful.

But can i use python for such help instead of C#? Or C# is a better option?

Closing this topic as the duplicate conversation is more active: C# or PYTHON for making a revit plugin? Or a direct software/ way to make a plugin?

Please refrain from duplicates in the future.
