Pick Selection + Text Input + Dynamo Player = Awesome

So, I have been playing around with Dynamo player quite a bit since it came out.

Initially I was a little bummed out that any OOTB nodes for selection were not working. Luckily this is not true for custom python nodes as pointed out on the forums here, https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/revit-2017-1-dynamo-player/6729/12?u=john_pierson. The funny thing is, this example actually used one of my nodes from Rhythm!

After the ability to select was demonstrated, I decided we neeed some text box input as well. After dissecting a few of Dimitar’s awesome nodes, I finally came up with a solution.

Enter, the Rhythm.TextBoxInput node.


This node will provide a popup that allows the user to enter a string to use for whatever is needed.

See it in action below, (there is audio so be warned).

Get it in the latest version of Rhythm and have fun!
