How can I use cross-section values (for example high, width...) for parametrization?
During the parameterization, you can access the internal values of a model, for example the values of a selected cross-section. The formula of b for the flange width is especially important here. This involves two special formulas.
The formula Cross Section() is embedded in the formula GetCsPar(;). CrossSection(n) is taken as a string from the n-th row of the cross-section table. GetCsPar (“Cross-section”; “ID”) requires the cross-section as a string and the value ID that is sought. You can obtain the ID from the window “Edit parameters” using the Info button, as shown in the figure. There are a lot of parameters that can help you also find the eccentric loads, for example.
