Listening Parameters in Families

Listening Parameters in Families

Create a way to "listen" to a shared parameter value in the family being tagged and associated it with the tag's parameters. This is similar to how labels pull parameter values through the tag. Ideally there would be a dialog where you could select each shared parameter to listen for, then directly use it in an equation or associate it with a family parameter.

 

For example we have a light switch family that has a switch quantity parameter. This family has the ability to show the switch type and the control zone designations for each switch. Currently we have to have a tag that has 1, 2 , 3, or 4 switches as types. If we could "listen" to the switch's quantity parameter and drive the tag visibility off of that parameter it would eliminate the arduous task of switching of tag types continually when initially tagging.
