#RTCEUR Wish 4 granted! Change parameter value in multiple families

Doug asked ” How about a routine to change the value of a shared parameter in all families in a folder to the same specified value.”

public void setParamInFamilies()
{
    Application app = this.Application;
    foreach (string filename in Directory.GetFiles(@"C:\Users\harry_000\Desktop\rtc", "*.rfa"))
    {
        Document doc = app.OpenDocumentFile(filename);
        using (Transaction t = new Transaction(doc, "Set param value"))
        {
            t.Start();
            
            // get the parameter to set
            FamilyParameter param = doc.FamilyManager.get_Parameter("RTC Parameter");
            
            if (param == null)
                continue;
            
            // loop through all types in the family
            foreach (FamilyType ftype in doc.FamilyManager.Types)
            {
                // set the parameter value for this type
                doc.FamilyManager.Set(param, "Budapest");
            }
            t.Commit();
            doc.Save();
            doc.Close(false);
        }
    }
}
