    Default Linking door and window parameters to room parameters

    Hello,

    I´am looking to link a shared parameter from a room to the door and window families belonging to this room. For example there would be a shared parameter in the room called "appartement number". Now I want revit to fill out the same parameter in door and window families belonging to this room in order to make window and door tags who are reflecting the room parameters. Anyone has experieces with this particular problem ?

    Thank you in advance.

    The biggest single issue is that Doors/Windows have not be created (by the factory) with a "link" built in. Only the To:Room, and From:Room portions have been activated. The door does not know if it belongs to the To: room or the From: room number.

    I believe it would take some custom programing via the API to get this functionality into your project.

    Thanks a lot,

    API programming seems a little bit hard to me. But if you know a good starter tutorial maybe I could try.

    Don't look at me, I'm just an Architect. I'm not going anywhere near the programing arena. After getting away from Lisp programing, I swore I'd not do that again.

    Any set of routines generally available for use by programmers. The operating system, for example, has APIs for a variety of disk/file handling tasks. APIs are written to provide portable code. The programmer only has to worry about the call and its parameters and not the details of implementation, which may vary from system to system.
