    Conditional Parameter (Title Sheet)

    Hi all, wondering whether anyone could help

    I've steered clear from Revit conditional parameter formatting as I've never really had to use it, however I feel i should know being an experienced user and i also have a situation that i need to sort!

    Could anyone point me in the right direction for my situation below:

    I basically want to link my suitability status to my suitability description in our title sheet, so i want to format the status so it does something like the following:

    If suitability status = S2, then suitability description = FOR INFORMATION
    If suitability status = D2, then suitability description = FOR TENDER

    and so on, implementing the 1192 codes.

    Hopefully this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't believe there is a way to do that directly. You will end up needing another parameter since Revit can't evaluate conditional text statements as-is.

    The formula: if(SuitabilityStatus="S2","For Information",if(SuitabilityStatus="D2","For Tender","")) will throw an Improper Use of Boolean error since S2 & D2 are text values. However, if you had a third value that could translate between them it could work, although I think it will end up being more effort than it is worth, and your formula could end being rather long since you need an if() statement for each value you want to display. The attached image should get you headed in the right direction.

    SuitabilityStatus & SuitabilityDescription are both text parameters. Status is an integer.

    edit: All the parameters need to be shared, and the formula has to be in the Label, not in the parameters dialog.
    edit2: This might not work at all I know that using conditionals in tags works, but I'm not getting it to behave in a title block. If anyone else wants to take a stab at it, Title Block is enclosed.
