TextNote - get rotation

Hello, I’ve found topics here about rotating TextNotes, but i’d like to do the opposite - try and get values of rotated TextNotes.

So far I’ve found that TextNote class in API doesnt have property “Rotation” (it does have Position), but TextNoteOptions class does.

Being a python newb i’m asking what i’m doing wrong here :slight_smile:

so far i’m getting AttributeError that there is no such attribute as Rotation…

import clr
clr.AddReference('ProtoGeometry')
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *

# Import DocumentManager and TransactionManager
clr.AddReference("RevitServices")
import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager
doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument

# Import RevitAPI
clr.AddReference("RevitAPI")
import Autodesk
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *

# Import ToDSType(bool) extension method
clr.AddReference("RevitNodes")
import Revit
clr.ImportExtensions(Revit.Elements)

#The inputs to this node will be stored as a list in the IN variable.
x = UnwrapElement(IN[0])
rot = []
for i in x:
	rot.append(i.Rotation)


#Assign your output to the OUT variable
OUT = rot

also i’ve tried this approach but that’s just freestyling at the moment

Okay, seems I’ve found it - its BaseDirection property of TextNote class.

Case closed!
