Hey,I have come across a problem regarding shared parameters.I have created a door family with nested door panels.So when I go to the parameters, I can change the door panel in drop-down menu.The thing is, I have assigned codes to each of the panel, and I would like them to show up in the host family below specific parameter.Ex: I have wooden panel (Code 1) and glazed panel (Code 2)In the host family I would change from wooden panel to glazed panel. And I need it to change the code as well.I have set up shared parameters and everything works with only 1 door panel. When I add more, then the parameters do not work.Thanks for any help

I think i understand what you are asking. You want the parameter value to change when you change panels. If so then you would have to create some kind of formula or something in the the host family. I'm not even sure it can be done. I had the same issue with a set of doors I made. I needed the Panel Type Mark to show up in a schedule. I created a shared parameter and added to the panel families, then I loaded those families and linked the parameter. When I linked it to the host it would not update. At first I thought this was a bug, but I realized the other parameters work this way why wouldn't the shared. I decided to just fill it out for every door type in the host family. I works pretty good and gives me the info I need to schedule.

Thats exactly what Im trying to do. It works with a single panel but when I add more it does not work anymore. So I will have to find another solution for this. 

Thank you very much for answering.

Are you saying that the parameter does not even allow you to edit it once you add another panel? If so then something else may be wrong. If NOT then make sure that you have linked the parameters on all types of each nested family. I usually place an instance of each family and make sure that the paramaters a linked on all. Then I set up the Family type parameter.
