    Door From/To Room Value in Schedule

    Hi,

    Here is a free plugin to update all doors from/to room information in schedule. Currently, there is a feature in Revit Architecture that will not update door's from/to room value if the door is flipped in the plan view. This plugin will allow you to update all doors room informaiton.

    Revit Sticky Notes: Door From and To Value in Schedule - Free Revit Tool


    Planned addition to this plugin is:

    - Add a parameter (Yes/No) to exclude selected doors from updating, i.e. riser doors, corridor doors etc.

    Any feedback/suggestions will be very welcome.



    Regards

    Good work. Does it work on Revit Linked files?

    Thanks Martijn and Phillip for your kind words.

    Phillip,

    I would look into linked files business. Any thoughts why would oyu want to do it though?

    Well, I can answer that (probably): lot's of time you will have doors modelled in a linked file whilst the room itself is in the host file. So you need to be able to update the parameter value for a linked object in order to make it work in those cases...

    Hmmm..not my prefered option.I wouldn't encourage this workflow. I would always have doors and rooms modelled in the same model. If you have a seprate Interiors model then you can link "spaces" from host model to rooms from linked model. Also, I don't think Revit will allow you to report room information from a host model into a linked model.

    What I undertood by Phillip's suggestion is that you want to update doors' from/to room values in schedules in linked files too, in this case doors and rooms modelled in the linked files. So for instance, lets say you have a campus project and you have 4 detached buildings on site and you model them in 4 different models. You then have a master mdoel linking all 4 models and have a master door schedule in a master model. In this case, instead of opening each model and running this tool, you would want to run this from a master mdoel and it updates in all link files. This is possible and I can see it very useful.

    Yeah sorry, that's what I meant to say: while the schedule is in the host file. Need more

    Ys Rahul.

    You have the workflow correct. I know if you can do this then you will make some people very happy. I will be interested to see how you get on with that

    Cheers

    Phillip

    Ah! not possible. Didn't realise with 2012 API it is not permitted. I have couple of codes that I developed back in 2010 and used BeginTransaction() and EndTransaction() methods to achieve this but in 2012 it is not possible..the only wany I can think of this working is to open each link and change values and close. But instead of opening each link automatically I would rather open them individually and run this command manually...for now..until we can change linked files elements via API, again.

    Phillip, let me know if you find any info on this.

    ....from AUGI post ...I have a code that I wrote in Revit 2010 using doc.BeginTransaction() and doc.EndTransaction(). I would like to use it in Revit 2012 but can't convert it to 2012 comliant. It throws transaction error message.

    R
    2010 code was a bit before my time but I'm assuming now that youwould replacing BeginTransaction etc with

    Dim t As New Transaction(doc, "Test")
    t.start()

    ...Do Model Changes in here

    t.Commit() or t.Rollback()

    Hope that helps
