Setting Parameter Values by name

Any ideas here. Im stumped

Can you show what the yellow balloon is displaying? It’s possible that the storage type of the parameter doesn’t match the type of value you are trying to set. If you get the actual Parameter object, you can use a Parameter.StorageType node to determine what you should actually be providing to the Element.SetParameterByName node.

cool, thanks ill have a go

Actually it looks like you are providing strings instead of elements.

You filtered the family names instead of the elements they pertained to. So now you’re trying to apply parameters to a string. Just switch the FilterByBoolMask input from the family name to the element and you’ll be set.


That did the trick, thanks lads.
