Dynamic Block with Visibility States as Schedule Tag?
« on: January 12, 2016, 11:52:21 am »
Architecture firm using ACA Architecture 2016.

So we'd like to create a Schedule Tag with visibility states for our Wall Styles that can be "linked" to our Wall Schedule.  Is this possible?  Our feeble attempts have left us scratching our heads.  When we create a new block with visibility states and add it as a schedule tag, the visibility states "triangle" doesn't show up, rendering them useless...

Furthermore, what we'd REALLY like to have happen is for the visibility state to be controlled by the Wall Style so that if the schedule tag for a 2 Hour Wall that has a property definition that's associated with the 2 hour visibility state it appears as we want it on the drawing...

This is our current partition tag block that has visibility states for 1 hour and 2 hour walls that we toggle using the visibility state pull down "triangle". (ignore the Tails VS)

I don't see this happening without some coding wizardry.

Interesting use of an interesting tag.  :-D

You might be able to roll the data thru a lookup table and then on to your schedule.  It looks like you can extract the informaiton.

 Never done it before but there are some smart peeps here.

You are responsible for your own experiences, ... so why are you asking me how  cold the water is?

If the Schedule Tag uses essentially a block, why can't it have visibility states?

In looking into the creation of a schedule tag, only text based elements are considered a property that can be associated with an element within the item being tagged...



Notice that only the text based items are listed as "Labels" within the Schedule Tag creation.  So I suppose it is not possible based on this finding...
