Mapkey to search for a param, change type and add data

Hello all,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'd like to create a mapkey to search for a part number within an assembly, change a parameter property type to Integer and then ask for a value to fill in the Integer.
I'm using Wildfire4 by the way...

Thanks!!!

You can't change the type of a parameter after it's created. Once it's set to string, or some other type, you can't change it.

You could do this task through one of the programming toolkits. Like
Pro/TOOLKIT or J-Link.

I do something very similar to that, however I created a trail file to accomplish removing parameters, adding parameters, and the trail file ends leaving the parameter window open so I can enter text as needed.

I do something like that with component parameters, with a JLink program. I search for a parameter, read the value, delete it and recreate it as integer, then designate it.

Best regards

Daniel
