    Reset overrides in area plans

    I've got a dynamo graph that checks a value against a max value and turns the object red if the max is exceeded. I'd also like it to be able to reset the overrides if a previous violator is now below the max. I'm using the clockwork nodes and they seem to work fine in normal views, but the reset doesn't work in area plans. I'm using the area plans to populate the max values, so I'd like to find a way to have this work without changing views if possible. Anyone else run into this before? I know I can just override them to black instead, but that seems like a cheat.

    Quick test seems to work with the Springs.Doc.ActiveView Node:

    I'm overriding Area's because you mentioned an Area Plan? If this doesn't work, what elements are you overriding?

    The springs active view did the trick. I was using the clockwork active view node and that seems to be a little more limited. This is for egress paths. I'm using the area plan to set maximum travel distance based on where they exist in the model and then comparing the max travel to the actual travel, turning any that exceed the max red.
    Thanks for the help!
