  • in reply to: Why does my label offset itself from the insertion point? #4430

    you may need to do this
    “If label_custom_arrow Then
    add2 (label_position [2][1]+label_position [3][1]), (label_position [2][2]+label_position [3][2])
    Else
    add2 0,0
    EndIf”
    but without seeing your script its a bit difficult to tell
    Hope this helps

    thats my point Barry (probably badly made) that if you move the origin then place the label it will not say 0,0, but the location the ‘moved’ false origin.

    It works for me please make sure the origin is in its default location

    its possible but I think you are approaching it the wrong way. Do you have any ARCHICAD files you could post to illustrate what you have done or what you are trying to do.

    Hi Matt
    Not sure what you are actually trying to do. What sort of object are you trying to create?
    Probably it would be easier to create a property and achieve totals when you SCHEDULE.
    Usually the ‘update’ occurs when you schedule.
    Provide a bit more info and we will try and help

    The simple answer is with difficulty. A window (or door) can only be placed in a WALL. So the only way to do this is by ‘calling’ the window using the objects script. BUT this will only work graphically because the result will not be neither an wall nor a window. It will be an object.
    Why do you want to do this? what is your workflow?

  • in reply to: Missing Label commands in 22 GDL guide #4180

    “gs_rebate_width”
    “gs_ds_w”
    “ac_leaf_width”
    “gs_leaf_thk”

    so basically I need to be able to link these door parameters to properties otherwise I cannot correctly define the egress width required for AUSTRALIAN doors

    I have a Label which pulls parameters from door objects to define the Australian Egress Width correctly.
    The Egress Width shown in Door 22 does not comply with Australian Standards.
    My Label uses….
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Pull standard parameters from standard doors
    n = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_rebate_width”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, framerebate)
    nn = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_ds_w”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, framerebate2)
    m = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “ac_leaf_width”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, leafwidth)
    o = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_leaf_thk”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, leafthk)

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!transfer to Label parameters
    parameters rebate =max(framerebate,framerebate2)
    parameters gs_leafwidth=leafwidth
    parameters gs_leafthk=leafthk

    Which works fine for the label (at the moment)but I cant schedule the result as I cannot transfer these parameters to properties.
    Any ideas anyone?
