Hello,

I have created curtain walls with profiles in the panels, both as grids and as individual panels with the needed spacing, , but due to specific layouts of the the existing curtain walls I also needed the panels as an adjustible array. the vertical works fine, but I cant get the horizontal version to flex in the length onced arrayed without breaking the constrants.

any assistance would be great, and thanks for all the help already provided.

I have attached both files the "Horz" version is the one that continues to break.

You need to nest your family into your array family with the length parameter in both families.  This tutorial may be helpful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5MyzijIuco

it was nested, the tutorial was good, thanks, but not not working,, weak references, strong or named reference make no difference, only changed the way the offset from the the original generic model, tryed extrusion and sweeps in the origal generic, had a little hope with the locking of the first array object to the original componant, but nope, the array height fuctions fine until I flex the length,

In your nested family you have a parameter called length... good.  In your Family you also have a parameter called length... good.  However you missed a step, you need to click on your nested family (in your parent family) and in your properties find the "Length" under Dimensions and click on the little button next to it to open the Associate Family Parameter dialog box, once it is open select Length to associate the Length of the nested family to the Length of the Parent Family.
