Revit API - Access to Text & Label Types within Family and Projects

I'm trying to add new text types and label types to a project or family.

I'm able to create new family types but I cannot access the text/label system paramters.

 

Revit 2013

 

Sorry for the noob question.

Yes this will work.

I can look for the same procedure for labels and I'll be set.

 

Thanks!

For Text Types this worked.

Revit API - Create Text Type

 

For Label types I had to change "TextNote" to "TextElement" and "TextNoteType" to "Symbol".

 

Project completed.
