Possible to do an external command (non-Pyrevit) through pyrevit? for example, run an ideate addin after executing the pyrevit code.
- Launch the command in the Revit UI
- Look at the end of the journal file
- you will find something like
Execute external commandand what is following between the two
:can be taken to replace the string in the last line of the following sample
# encoding: utf-8 from pyrevit import HOST_APP, UI uiapp = HOST_APP.uiapp uiapp.PostCommand(UI.RevitCommandId.LookupCommandId("CustomCtrl_%CustomCtrl_%CustomCtrl_%Add-Ins%Revit Lookup%Options%RevitLookup.Commands.SnoopActiveViewCommand"))
for Reference, read the following https://jeremytammik.github.io/tbc/a/1040_postcommand.htm
and see code samples in C# here
GitHub - jeremytammik/PostAddinCommand: Test programmatic posting of an external command defined by a custom Revit add-in.
@Jean-Marc - does this not work for addins loaded outside of the “Addins” tab? - having issues with any other kind of addins
in my tests yes, it did work
mind sharing one of the tests you did that isn’t pointed to the addins?
i believe it would be a formatting error for me
# encoding: utf-8 from pyrevit import HOST_APP, UI uiapp = HOST_APP.uiapp uiapp.PostCommand(UI.RevitCommandId.LookupCommandId("CustomCtrl_%CustomCtrl_%DiRootsOne%Data IO%SheetLink"))
Is this the same thing to launch Revit command ? Like in the following journal for example ?
'E 08-Mar-2023 13:24:20.300; 0:< Jrn.Command "Ribbon" , "Gère les positions du projet , ID_GEO_MANAGE_LOCATIONS" ' 0:< Unnecessary nesting;ArrowUI_4;-1;ID_GEO_MANAGE_LOCATIONS ;N++EB(NB); ' 0:< ::523:: Delta VM: Avail -3 -> 134125114 MB, Used +22 -> 3106 MB; RAM: Avail +5 -> 16906 MB, Used +22 -> 1851 MB ' 0:< GUI Resource Usage GDI: Avail 9027, Used 973, User: Used 656 'H 08-Mar-2023 13:24:21.562; 0:<
No, a Revit builtin command is a PostableCommand
and doc ApiDocs.co
there is the PostableCommand enumeration
