      Hi

      I’ve recently decided to upload some GDL content to bimcomponents.com, and have a couple of questions regarding the checking process.

      Firstly, regarding global parameters and requests. I know that these are now restricted and should not be returned to the parameters list.

      However, I have used a couple of requests in the master script (‘FULL_ID_OF_PARENT’ and ‘ID_OF_MAIN’) so that these can be used throughout the object without storing these as parameters. This flags up as an error in the checking process, because the requests are done in the master script and therefore follows through into the parameter script.

      To (hopefully) avoid the problem I have used GLOB_SCRIPT_TYPE <> 5 in the master script.

      Could you please clarify this?

      I also get two “Uninitialized variable” reports. These do not flag up as an error in the object when I check script, and the report does not say which variables are at fault. Will this stop the file from uploading? Is the only way to find these to convert back to XML and refer to the line number?

      On a side note, when uploading to bim components, the URL to the FAQ is broken (http://archicadwiki.com/BIMcomponents/FAQ).

      Shaun,
      Quick answers:
      1. GLOB_SCRIPT_TYPE is ok in the master script.
      2. Line numbers: check script should show all errors and warnings. If you send me a file, I can check it, if there is a bug…
      3. FAQ: I clicked on your link, and it is working normally. Maybe it could be a temporary server problem…

      1. GLOB_SCRIPT_TYPE is ok in the master script.

      This is very interesting. So if we use “if GLOB_SCRIPT_TYPE <> 5 then” in the master script to prevent the code from running in the parameter script, we will not receive an error?

        Ben, it is the purpose of GLOB_SCRIPT_TYPE: it enables you to write script parts to the master, which will be used in only selected scripts.

      There are several of my last uploaded GDLs on bimcomponents, which got no downladbutton on the site! I have written to the bimcomponents-Support month ago but there is no respond and no new downloadbutton on the elements-sites.

      One of several examples there:

      There is no “Download” button as such but there is the ‘drag & drop’ arrow that works.
      Thing is the object is imported with no name – i.e. it is called “.gsm”.
      So it doesn’t show up as a window object.
      It can be opened and renamed though and then can be used as a window object.

      Now we corrected the empty name error too, so you can drag these solo objects to ARCHICAD, and do not need to rename them. Thanks for your patience, and thanks for the reports.

        Nicola,

        We checked your uploads, and seems that all your objects failed the automatic tests – normally you should receive a mail about that. We checked the mail logs too, and we saw that there were problems with mail sending in a few days period – but that seems to be fixed for now. Please try to upload your libs again, and if you have any problems again send us a mail with the problematic objects.

        Sorry for the inconvenience.
