I have been working with creating text types for awhile.
I'm currently using C#: - Revit 2013
// Create a duplicate Element ele = textNote.TextNoteType.Duplicate(txtType); TextNoteType noteType = ele as TextNoteType;
I can easily change Font Type to Arial Narrow along with almost everything else.
noteType.get_Parameter("Text Font").Set("Arial Narrow");
I cannot find any information on the following:
Received info on Text Style Background.
// Text Background 1 = Transparent or 0 =Opaque
>>> How do I set Text Style Background?
In the previous update, you mentioned the mothod to call the line.
Actually this doesn't help. I checked that for any color, the text style object's "Background“ Parameter value is always 1. Revit API cannot set specific color as the text style back ground.
>>>How do I set Text Style Color?
Text color can be set by changing the text style object's "Color" parameter value. The color value in the RGB value in decimal.
for example: noteType.get_Parameter("Color").Set(16744448); //16744448 = (R=155 G=128 B=0)
>>>How do I set Text Style Keep Readable option?
Directly chang ethe text object's "Keep Readable" parameter value to 1. Note this parameter doesn't belong to the text type, but text element itself.
>>>How do I set Text Style Project Leader Arrowhead Style?
noteType.get_Parameter("Leader Arrowhead").set(headTypeElementId) //Here input the head type element's ElementId.
Ahh... you had me pulling my hair out until I realised that your colour value was incorrect!
Color(R=155, G=128, B=0) actually equals 32923 (and NOT 16744448)... this is confirmed with RevitLookup utlity in Revit 2013.
For those interested you can convert a "Color" object to the int that Revit requires with ColorTranslator.ToWin32(color)
