    Question Tag using Elevation Parameter in Wall-Based Family

    Hi All!

    I'm working on some electrical outlet families (Wall-Based Electrical Fixture), and I've come across an issue I can't seem to solve.
    I want to be able to tag my family, and as part of the tag display the "Elevation" Instance parameter. I understand this is a built-in parameter, and I've looked across the forum and online to find other solutions but none have worked for me..
    Anyone do this in their projects? Is it possible?

    I'm attaching a basic test family and project.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Currently it isn't possible, and you have to either:

    1. Use your own shared parameter (and worry about having two) that controls the height

    2. Use Elevation, and use Dynamo or the API to copy the value in to a parameter for a tag.
