Remove from Revit Details
This chapter explains in detail the Remove action - it is recommended to read Revit Adapter details section first for the information about mechanics of the adapter itself.
As explained in Remove from Revit basics, there are two action-specific inputs that drive Remove:
- Request of type deriving from
IRequest explained in more detail in a dedicated section
- Action config of type
They are specified as arguments of the
Revit method of
RevitAdapter. Depending on the thread on which the
Remove method is executed, they will be either sent via Sockets as a data package (if
Remove is executed outside of Revit thread) or passed directly to
RevitUIAdapter (if everything is run on a single Revit thread).
RevitUIAdapter triggers Remove action, which points directly to
Delete CRUD method.
Delete executes following tasks:
1. Collects ElementIds of Revit elements that meet requirements set by the Request (done in
2. Deletes the Revit elements under ElementIds from point 1.
Finally, the number of deleted elements is returned to
RevitAdapter (using a Sockets bypass if
RevitUIAdapter do not run on the same thread).
The diagram below maps out the above workflow - it should be read as an action-specific variation of the Adapter action stage of the general Adapter flowchart.
