      Is there a way to identify whether hinged opening door(from typical GS doors) has 1 door leaf or 2?

      It looks to me as though you won’t get this information from the objects – not the standard GS doors anyway.
      The single doors always one leaf and the doubles always have 2.
      As it is not a parameter you can set in the object you won’t be able to get that information out from the object.

      well, hope there is some workaround to this.

      As some of you know, egress dimension in the standard GS door does not comply with egress standard in AUS.(nor Local version of ARCHICAD does not report correct value as well.)

      What I am after is clear width dimension for DDA drawings where the width is measured as per diagram in the attachment.

      I can set the calculation to take leaf width as variable (egg if leaf_width > 1200 then leaf=2) but it would be much reliable to have calculations based on the true information.

      You can check a listing parameter called “gs_list_doorleafwidths”. It contains the widths of the leafs as a string. I know it is not the best solution, but you can try as a workaround…

      Thanks Gergely..

      Interestingly, requesting second door leaf width always returns to 900mm from single hinge door.

      doubleleafwidth1 = 0
      rrr = request (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_secondleaf_w”,index_ww, type_ww, flags_ww, dim1_ww, dim2_ww, width_leaf2nd)
      if rrr then doubleleafwidth1 = width_leaf2nd

      I was able to define the door types by using “gs_secondleaf_w” & “gs_pivotOffset”

      one thing I’m struggling with is finding a unique parameter used in any store door types… gs_secondleaf_w returns all store doors to zero..
