(I am building some custom labels). Currently I can grab an object’s ID using GLOB_ID, or similar. But I would like to grab a specific parameter in the object say, randomPAR. Is this possible? If so, how? So far I have tried: I have a custom object with the parameter TestPAR defined in the Parameters as a text parameter. In my label object, I try re_parameter = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “TestPAR”, nameind_TEST, type_TEST, flag_TEST, dim1_TEST, dim2_TEST, val_TEST) labelText = val_TEST but it results in the error “Uninitialized variable at line 13 in the 2D script of file TEST LABEL.gsm.” I have also tried substituting “ac_bottomlevel” for “TestPAR” with similar results. Can someone help? *this is a duplicate to a post I made on Archicad-Talk, but I figured would post here as well. That post is here Also I have referenced this post from 2003 http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=648 October 23, 2015 at 19:30 #1814 James MurrayParticipant Initialize that val_TEST variable. val_TEST ="" re_parameter = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “TestPAR”, nameind_TEST, type_TEST, flag_TEST, dim1_TEST, dim2_TEST, val_TEST) labelText = val_TEST If you don’t initialize you will always get a warning. Sometimes it doesn’t matter, but with Requests it often does. If variables aren’t initialized, they are assumed to be numbers, and that variable needs to be a string.
