Command Interface Parameters


revit command parameters.JPG






Is it is possible to implement user interface input similar to wall interface shown above in a custom command? (The green bar which appears during built-in commands, allowing users to set parameters which persist between instances of the command). Does this interface component have a name?  I'm not sure what to search for in the samples or documentation.


Any insight would be great, Thanks,

Dear Owen,


Thank you for your query.


No, sorry, I do not believe that is possible.


As far as I know, all possible custom user interface options are demonstrated by the ADN Revit API Labs Training Material:


Look at the documentation and lab instructions:


As said, I do not believe what you are asking for is included.


Sorry about that.


I hope this helps.


Best regards,

Hi Jeremy,


Thanks for confirming. 


I really like this style of interface, which appears only during the command, allows the input of a few relevant parameters, and maintains the last set value between executions of the command.  I also prefer to use the built-in interface elements where possible for consistency, so I was hoping this was an option.


Not a big deal, there are certainly other ways to get there.


Thanks for the UI references, I'll have a look.
