Thanks a lot for your reply. I really appreciate it!
It really interesting what you showed, getting access to element properties by using DS However what I’m interested was in replace the drop down “elment types” nodes by using DS in a code block to avoid finding the wished type in a really long list. For example I tried with the “categories” nodes and it worked, but I haven’t succeed with the “element types” node. But maybe I’m trying something that is not possible, I don’t know.
Also another reason, why I would like to get access to element types by using DS is for having access to more possibilities within revit API. For example with “Element Types” nodes only you can have access to elements placed in certain classes, however if we look at Revit API there are additional classes that contains more elements types not comprised by this node, such as class “Autodes.Revit.DB.Element” where you can have access to all the elements placed in the model at the same time. That’s why, it would be really good to select element types by using DS, because you can customize the selection according your needs at the same time than you are making sure that nobody will switch the element type from the drop down list. However maybe this approach is only possible via Python or C#.
Thanks for participating in the discussion.
