Assembly: RevitAPI (in RevitAPI.dll) Version: 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11)
A collection of element IDs.
Identifier of the type to assign to this element.
Return ValueThe map of original element IDs to the new element IDs if some elements were replaced by new elements (the map is empty if no elements were replaced)
In some cases, applying a change in type will result in a new element being created. The only active examples of this are when applying a normal wall type to a curtain panel, or converting such a wall back to a curtain panel. Then return map would have (original element id, new element id) pair(s). Note: this function needs an open transaction. Note: this function calls regeneration.
