Hi,

Could someone please tell me how I could modify the solar heat gain coefficient for double glass doors?  I think I can modify the U value in the "Construction" xml file, but I can't figure out the proper way to also add solar heat gain, because it just says 0 now.  

Thanks!

Just open the family, then look at the parameters dialog box and note the 'solar heat gain coefficient' parameter. In the 'formula' field type in a number between 0.0 and 1.0. Then save and reload the family into the project. See attached.

Thanks, dgcad.  Why does the Type Properties box still show the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient as 0, even though in the family type dialogue boz it doesn't?
