Wall Labels - Wall Detail Names - View Name

Recommended Posts

By Default, Wall Labels are Blank and the Wall Detail Names in the Project Browser are not very useful. But if you change the Wall Label, the Names in the Project Browser will also change. You can then use the built-in Global Macro %view.name% in a text box in the Wall Detail to Label that view.

So here's a macro (evaluated) that can be added to the Default Wall Labels that will set the Wall Label and the name of the Detail in the Project Browser.

referenced ? obj = referenced : obj = owner
result = "Wall " + obj.floor_number.to_s + "." + obj.wall_id.to_s.rjust(2,"0")

Wall 1.02

If you want to add the "Wall Type", use the following instead:

referenced ? obj = referenced : obj = owner
result = "Wall " + obj.floor_number.to_s + "." + obj.wall_id.to_s.rjust(2,"0") + " [" + obj.wall_type + "]"

Wall 1.02 [siding-6]

You can set the Default Label for each class of Wall (Exterior, Interior, Railing, Half Wall, Fence, Deck Railing, etc). The Labels can be displayed or not as desired. Only Walls with Framing will be included in the Wall Details of the Project Browser. Variations of the above can be used for the different Wall classes.
