    Using label parameter values as family type parameters

    Hello,
    I've searched google and couldn't find an answer - so I hope I'm not posting a question which has been previously discussed.
    I have a window tag, with a label that takes a shared parameter ("STYLE") from the window family, and the MARK parameter (the number of the window type, used for schedules).
    The window tag is basically the MARK number frame by a polygon.
    I want the shape of the polygon to change according to the STYLE of the window.
    For example, if the STYLE is 1, the the polygon is a square. If the STYLE is 2, the polygon is a circle, etc.
    I created the different polygons, and gave each of the an on/off parameter.
    Now, what I can't find a way to do is to link the on/off parameter to the STYLE parameter.

    Would really appreciate your help

    Thank you

    You can create multiple types in one tag using the visibility parameter, but it won't be automatic. Might be able to do it with Dynamo though.

      The specifics vary depending on your particular situation, but it is possible to use a formula to change a family type (by jumping through some hoops). There's similar discussions here:

        Not with a Tag. For any sort of automation of the Tag graphics relative to the host you need the API/Dynamo/etc. Even then, it only works at run time.
