You should be able to Edit the baluster panel family and delete the end baluster and align the glass edge to the dimensioned reference plane. Then in the railing baluster properties set up the baluster panel spacing to where the panels butt to each other.

so instead of a set length, use dimensioned reference planes?...

 

haven't gotten that to work yet.

I'm trying to get a family that will adjust to variable lengths and won't just put a panel in that overhangs the stair.

thanks for all of the help- but unless there is a way to interupt rails, this solution isn't what I'm after.

 the solution in the tutorial creates a swept plane of glass that starts at the top of the stair and ends at the bottom.  if I was interested in creating a system that is created of panels that are interrupted through out the stair, then this wouldn't be the solution. 

 in the photo orv posted, there's an interuption to the sweep halfway down the stairs (2 panels).  any ideas on how I could do this with out the result I found?

I've had similar issues with railing families using panels. I'm not sure there's a complete parametric solution for this just yet, but I have had some success with using line based families. Starting with a line based family, you can create the components of your railing system with solid extrusions, sweeps, etc. that use the Length dimension as a parameter. I created a simple joint using a void object which I then arrayed at a defined length and set to an array parameter (Joint spacing/length) to get a standard panel size. The corner condition is part of the sweep and the runs are adjustable with graphic controls as well as by editing the instance parameters. It works fairly well in a pinch and you get the look of the panel spacing relatively easily. I've attached a simple version in RA2008. Hope this helps.
