Temporary Hide Python script Error

Got the following python code from an previous posts temporary-hide-in-dynamo

import clr

clr.AddReference(‘RevitAPI’)
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *
from System.Collections.Generic import *
clr.AddReference(“RevitServices”)
import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

elements = UnwrapElement(IN[0])
view = UnwrapElement(IN[1])
ids = list()
booleans = [ ]

for item in elements:
ids.append(item.Id)
ielements = ListElementId
TransactionManager.Instance.EnsureInTransaction(doc)
try:
view.HideElementsTemporary(ielements)
booleans.append(True)
except:
booleans.append(False)

TransactionManager.Instance.TransactionTaskDone()
OUT = (view,elements,booleans)

But I’m encountering the following error and am trying to understand it and resolve it.

Thanks in advance

@EddieSaez change line 19 to

ielements = List[ElementId]

Thankyou… appreciate your assitance.
Seems I’m getting tunnel vision and could not see that square brackets missing.
Time to have a break.

Thanks again

Hmm… OK that’s resolved, no more errors but nothing is temporarily hiding

You need to create a custom node.
Element.TemporarilyHideInView.dyf (13.1 KB)

or modify the code to work with a list
