Check this little node out:
This gets five pieces of information and writes each of them to a View instance parameter. Currently, it works in the context of the currently active view in Revit. The information acquired is as follows:
- current date / time
- worksets currently opened
- RVT links that are visible in the view
- the file sizes of those links
- the date modified for those links
Future applications of this can easily include reading the link status from the view parameter (by converting the string back to a list), comparing it to current link status, and then immediately showing what models have been updated and need to be reloaded...
