Need script to uncheck Follow Top Wall Peaks in all wall components

Recommended Posts

Can any of you scripting gurus out there help me out with a script to uncheck Follow Top Wall Peaks in all wall instances on all layers (or a layer at a time)?


I'm experiencing a bug that stops wall heights from being updated when changing Story Level heights. I've found that I can avoid this if all wall components in each wall instance have the Follow Top Wall Peaks option unchecked before making the Story Level change. But I have a load of walls of many different Styles and many of them are Grouped, making it a huge task.

Only thing I'm worried about is that I think I might have to delete top wall peaks first time round to remove any residual peak setting.

Here you go. This may be a case of be careful what you wish for. The following script clears the Follow Top Wall Peaks for every component of every Wall Style in the document. If you catch it immediately, Undo may work, but no promised.


Change the False at the end of Line 13 to True and edit the dialog message to create a version that Checks the box for all components of each Wall Style.


Good Luck.
