Windows and doors - name/type


#1

The picture speaks for itself…

I simple need to be able to differentiate between windows even though they are named the same…

Hi,

You are one level too deep in the hierachy, listing unique items by elementname instead of the familyname,and then elementname

Thanks for the theoretical answer Marcel… but how? :-S

how do I get the familyname for every window?..

I’m only able to get a list of all family types, I need it for all elements…

I don’t have an “all families of category” node…

Hello Thomas,

Try grouping them by their Symbol (their family type). The FS contains the family information as well:

FamilyInstance.Symbol was just what I was looking for! :slight_smile: Thanks!
