i have a window tag that is a type parameter and i would like to include another parameter that shows the total count of that family type in the project. i am not sure what the category parameter i should create to add to this tag so that i will see the the window type designation letter and the count of that window type in the model.

I don't see anyway to do this in a family with native Revit.  Obviously, you can do it with schedules but that would not be assigned to a parameter.


Maybe you could do it with Dynamo but you would probably have to run the Dynamo program everytime you needed to update this parameter.

Please see the attached pictures. Don’t know if that’s what you are looking for.

On attached schedule, for Door Type A1, and M, you will have the counts. However the Door Mark would not be shown for the obvious reason.


In Schedule Properties, under Sorting/Grouping, select sort by “Type”, and un-check “Itemize every instance”.

Add the “Count” your window schedule.

You can try to create your window family shared parameters and play with it. Hope you can get what you want.

<Family Type> parameter can't be controlled by formula. What else can we do? [ 1 2 ]
