I am trying to get the calculated value of Occupant Load into a custom Room Tag for a Life Safety Plan. I can get the proper calculated value result in a room schedule, but I also want to display that result in the Life Safety Room Tag I have generated. When I insert a label into my custom Life Safety Room Tag (derived from the basic room tag), I can only access shared parameters, but no calculated values. Any ideas?

Can't be done at present. It has been a wish list item for years. The best you can do is do the calculation in a schedule like you are doing, add a shared parameter to your room tag, and in the schedulewith both columns side by side hand fill in the room tag parameter for occupancy load. With an advanced kwolege of the Revit API this may be able to be automated by a savy programmer, but I'm not at that level yet. HTH Tom

Any luck on developing this yet..I'm working on the same problem. Would like to have a tag for occupant load calcs. would be cool to have this automated. Let me know if you have found a way to work this. I'll check out your file. Thanks, K

It's 2008, and I'm in the same situation.  In order to control the various values for Occupancy Load Factor, I have created a key schedule that holds the Occupancy type  and Occupancy Load Factor.  I have calculated the Occupant Load (number of persons) in the room schedule with a formula (Area/Occupancy Load Factor). 

I would very much like to display this calculated value in a room tag for the Life Safety Plan without having to create a shared parameter and manually enter the Occupant Loads.  I want the tag to show Room Name, Number, Area, Occupancy type, and the Occupancy Load (calculated value).

Any hopes of getting this in the upcoming release of Revit 2009?

<<fast forward to Revit 2009>>

 

Coming across the same problem now.  Is this available yet in Revit 2009? I can't seem to make it work.

I'm having the same problem.  Seems like it should be so simple.  I feel like if I could get into the room family to add the calculation there it might work.  I don't yet know how to access the room family.  I think it's untouchable.

I want to help here, I used Revit back in 2008 & 2009 to do Occupancy calcs.  While I understand that you aren't able to show the parameter that you want in your tag, have you considered creating a shared parameter which will show in your tag, and then in the schedule assigning to this parameter the value which you see in the schedule?  Then turn this shared parameter to an invisible field...

The linchpin lies in whether or not you can set the shared parameter to equal the existing value, but if so, then you've automated the process and could save time.
