Simple Parameter Question

Hello, I am trying to get my head around how to get type parameters out of families in dynamo, im sue it is very simple but i cant get it to work.

Can someone help ? i want to get the “W” type parameter out of columns

Column Parameter.dyn (5.6 KB)


Using the built in nodes for “GetParameterValueByName” will get you only the Instance parameters.
Clockwork has a great node called “Element.Type” which you can connect before the above node which will look for Type parameters instead. See image below

Thank you Alisder, one more quick question, how would I go about collecting all the “W” values from the different sublists if they are not in numerical order ?

You already have them in a list in that watch node on the top left of your image. You dont need to use the other methods in your graph

apologies, it was just a general question on how to grab the values from a list that is not in numerical order

Ah okay, you might be able to use one of the “Search for” or “contains” nodes but im not sure.
