I would like to use Item Types as a way to calculate quantities for transportation projects. I am using an "ItemNumber" field to lookup the item description as well as other information about the pay item. from a spreadsheet located in the workspace.
There are many instances when the same microstation element may have multiple pay items. For instance, a manhole we would pay for the manhole and the cover separately. I can make a property type called "Pay item" and use this to create an array of pay items on the microstation element. However, when I do this the lookup functionality fails. Anybody else try to do something like this with any success?
Expression does not support array property type. Can you please explain your use case with examples how will you like value should appear for your array property?
I would like to create a property type called "Pay Item". This property type will have properties of item code, item description, and units of measure. Using ItemCode, I would like to look up item description and units of measure from a spreadsheet.
In our industry, multiple pay items can be represented by the same microstation element. For example, a manhole is a microstation cell, but the contractor will get paid for installing the manhole and installing the manhole cover separately. So I would like to assign an array of pay items where each unique ItemCode within the array will look up the subsequent item description and units of measure.
Thanks for following up on this!

Is that what is described here in MicroStation CONNECT Update 14 help?

Is it possible to determine array length? If yes, what expression would you use?
Let's say I would like to determine the length of "Payments" array.

Please respect the forum best practices and do not steal old discussion with new (and different) question.
I recommend to ask in a new post, but as far as I know, there is no expression, returning a length of array.
