Search Item > Icon = "Composite Object"

I'm trying to write a plugin that exports all elements RevitIDs along with their timeline data.

 

In order for it to work (on doors, windows etc.) I have to eliminate all Revit Types.

 

The only property I could have found for this is the Icon

 

Item > Icon = "Composite Object" vs. Collection and Geometry.

Is there any other more practical way for that?

 

Second is no matter how much I've examined sample codes and tried to write a search for this I couln't figured it out.

 

Please help me write a search condition for Item > Icon = "Composite Object"

 

Thanks in advance..

From navisworks creating a search for it works fine. When I export the search out as xml

"Composite Object" data type shows as NAME. And I couldn't find a way to mimic this search in the Api..

Hi,

 

If I understand correctly, you want to create a search with the condition if the item is composite object? You could use Search + LINQ to do so. e.g.

 

   // assume you have define a search

    IEnumerable<ModelItem> finalItems = 

        search.FindAll(activeDocument,false).Where(x=> x.IsComposite);

 

Hope this helps.
