Re: Parameter Formula Conditional Statements

See the attached .rfa file (Revit 2013) as a demonstration of the setup that is achieved by the methods as described above. Load this into a Project and see what you think.

 

To work in conjunction with the checkbox method for Wires, I create a "Reporting Wires" Integer Parameter that checks the status of "Wires 3" and returns 3 if it is "YES" and 4 if it is "NO".

 

The "Reporting Integer" is calculated using the formula below, which first checks the selected Breaker Size and then checks the number of Wires with a nested IF/THEN/ELSE statement. The final line does not check for "1200A" because it is the final ELSE statement.

 

IF ( Breaker = B60 , IF ( Wires 3, 1, 2),
IF ( Breaker = B70 , IF ( Wires 3, 3, 4),
IF ( Breaker = B100 , IF ( Wires 3, 5, 6),
IF ( Breaker = B125 , IF ( Wires 3, 7, 8),
IF ( Breaker = B150 , IF ( Wires 3, 9, 10),
IF ( Breaker = B175 , IF ( Wires 3, 11, 12),
IF ( Breaker = B200 , IF ( Wires 3, 13, 14),
IF ( Breaker = B225 , IF ( Wires 3, 15, 16),
IF ( Breaker = B250 , IF ( Wires 3, 17, 18),
IF ( Breaker = B300 , IF ( Wires 3, 19, 20),
IF ( Breaker = B350 , IF ( Wires 3, 21, 22),
IF ( Breaker = B400 , IF ( Wires 3, 23, 24),
IF ( Breaker = B500 , IF ( Wires 3, 25, 26),
IF ( Breaker = B600 , IF ( Wires 3, 27, 28),
IF ( Breaker = B800 , IF ( Wires 3, 29, 30),
IF ( Breaker = B1000 , IF ( Wires 3, 31, 32),
IF ( Wires 3, 33, 34)))))))))))))))))

 

 

My apologies if I'm throwing too much out there at once...


Excellent Solution! Thank you for the detailed explanation. I like to know what is happening inside the Revit process so this really helps me out with future family development! Your family was great as an example also.
