    Yes/No Dialog

    You can think of this node as an alternative to the Bool input node. The output of the Yes No Dialog is labeled "b" meaning it is a boolean or true/false value. Yes would be true and no would be false. You can connect it to any node that has a "b" input and some sort of either/or choice. When you run the network, a yes/no dialog will pop up and you can choose Yes or No.

    Pop Up Node - New question

    The file is a 2019 file - I have exported it to 2018 and posted it here. Popups v2018.vwx

    Parametric view analysis

    I wonder if figuring out whether the church is visible would work better if you project from the other direction - from the church. If you have existing buildings and trees in your model, I imagine that you could create a projection from the church to the location of the building - all the building would need to be is a flat surface - and where the projection of the church hits the surface (isn't blocked by other buildings, trees, etc) is where you know that views of the church exist.

    Pop Up Node - New question

    I believe it would just be easier to make the multipliers (1,2,3,...) the output of the popup and multiply that output by 12 or whatever variable integer. Again, you can use the Popup node if the multipliers will always be the same, or you can use the Popup Dialog node to have a dialog appear after the script is run. The output of the popups are integers representing the index value of the item chosen from the list. Since your list will basically be 1,2,3 etc you can add one to that integer to get the value you need. I have built some examples for you. Popups.vwx

    Pop Up Node - New question

    This is possible with a Popup Dialog node, located in the User Interaction folder. The difference between this node that the Popup node is that every time the script is run, a dialog with a dropdown menu will appear, and you will have to pick your option before the network will finish running. If you want a static popup that appears in the OIP of a Marionette object, you still need to use the original Popup node and create the list via editing the script inside the node.

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    In all of the nodes in the default library, there are prefixes for the inputs and outputs that tell you the type of data coming in or out of the node. s = string n = number i = integer (whole number) h = a Vectorworks object, such as a piece of geometry b = True or False p = point v = vector item = multiple value types list = list of items These aren't all but they are the most common. When in doubt, match output prefixes to input prefixes when connecting nodes.

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    Wrapping is just a way to package a script. You can wrap a script by right-clicking on a node and selecting the appropriate command. When you wrap a script, the Input nodes that have been given names will appear in the OIP when the wrapper is selected. Once a network is wrapped, you can then convert that wrapper to a menu command or Marionette object.

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    There aren't any specific tutorials, all I can recommend is to take apart the script you have already and try to figure out how they work. There are some layer nodes that you can use too. You can find out the layer of the space and filter it with Marionette. I have attached a sample network to the other one I sent you that does this. The network is not finished as I don't know exactly how you want the filtering to work, but I tried to show you how to implement it. VW Rooms only_NvdS_Marionette2.vwx

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    Yes, its just a matter of creating a filter based on the layer of the object. You can do this with Marionette or you can add a field in your worksheet and query it there.

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    Hello @Mi&D- Here is a video that shows what I mean. I run the script in the video and update the tags so they show the correct info. ApplyAptAreatoSpaces.mov

    Sun Path Diagram

    Hello @amcdonell- This is a bug that will be fixed for 2019 in a future service pack. The problem is that with the Mac OS, Apple changed the way that they write file paths, so the command to locate an external library (in this case the geopy library) is broken. This is only a bug for those running Vectorworks on a Mac that is running 10.13 or higher. I also run this OS so I am currently experiencing this bug as well. Unfortunately I don't have any fixes. The script should still work on a PC and on an older Mac OS. This is true for all of my weather analysis graphs.

    Story Elevation on marionette

    Sorry I meant to write set up Storys before you set up Layers - this is because you can then use CreateLevelTemplate to create your default story levels as well as have the option to create associated layers at the same time.

    Story Elevation on marionette

    Hello @C.Miguel- sorry for the late response but I think I have discovered a bug in the story setup commands. I have attached a file that works, but it is important that you set up storys BEFORE you create classes. This is one of the few things that have a set order of operations in Vectorworks. I would also recommend you add in the command CreateStoryLayerTemplate and use that to create your layers, not creating them first and then associating them to a story. The bug I noticed is something to do with units. The document units of the attached file are millimeters, and the command seems to work as millimeters, but if it is set to different document units, it still reads the number as millimeters. I will file a bug but until then I would recommend creating your scripts to set up files using millimeters and then change the document units after running the script. Create Storys mm.vwx

    Get Cell Value (Marionette)

    Hello @Mi&D I have made a script that I think does what you are asking. It takes the total area from the worksheet and writes it to the Additional Info 2 field of the correct space. It works on all the spaces in the document. I have wrapped the network and given it the name "Apply Apartment Area to Spaces." It works, but the space tags do not update automatically - they have to be "bumped." What worked for me was to select all of the spaces, and choose the correct space label from the dropdown list (even if it is already selected). This will update the tag to show the correct info.

    Planar Boolean from two lists of objects

    @Antonio Landsberger pointed out that the node I made doesn't produce an output in the shortest list mode so I updated it. Here is the updated node. PlanarBoolean.vwx
