Revisions on sheet

653 Views, 7 Replies

Is there a way to access the revisions on sheet information in a viewsheet?  I can get the project revisions, but have not been able to find a way to access any information about the revisions shown on the revision schedule on a sheet.

 

There is an accessible revisions on sheet parameter however I cannot get anything meaningful out of it.   Has anyone had any luck with this?

Hello,

 

Sorry I don't have a solution, did you have any luck on this? I have 100 sheets and I need to add a revision to every one of them.

 

When I look at the "Revisions on sheet" parameter storage type it is set to None :-(

 

Thanks

David

Hi

 

The current API does not allow accessing this parameter and further working with it. However it is logged with the Development team to consider implementing in future.

 

Sorry for the bad news

cheers

Any movement on this?  It's a MAJOR sore point for our drafters and their carpal tunnel...

I believe that this has been added in Revit 2014

 

See the ViewSheet.GetAllProjectRevisionIds & ViewSheet.GetAdditionalProjectRevisionIds, as well as the SetAdditionalProjectRevisionIds method.

 

The "additional" methods refer to revisions that have manually been added, while the "all" method also retrieves revisions that are due to revision clouds being visible in the view.

not quite understand that "additional" stuff? is that extra project revision added using API? seems i cannot add it using normal UI or perhaps i missed something?

from chm it defines as "the project revisions that are additionally included in the sheet's revision schedules", what does it mean?

looks like no relevant info. in sample SDK, will be great if someone can post short coding sample.

The "additional" revisions are the ones that are manually placed on the sheet using the "Revisions On Sheet" window, that appears in the Properties tab for every sheet.

The revisions that are not "additional" are ones that are placed through the use of revision clouds.

thanks cshha for clarification.

looks like thses "additional" revisions are still the revisions added through normal Sheet Issues/Revisions window, just not yet instantiated w/ revision clouds by user.

not quite sure if it's useful? we're more concerned w/ numbering system which is too restrictive.
