Description

Sets the elevation of the indicated Story. Returns whether the elevation was successfully set. If the elevaton change would cause Layers associated with the Story to overlap Layers associated with another Story, then the change in elevation will be prevented.
FUNCTION SetStoryElevation(
story  :HANDLE;
elevation  :REAL) : BOOLEAN;
def vs.SetStoryElevation(story, elevation):
    return BOOLEAN

Parameters

story HANDLE The Story whose elevation is to be set.
elevation REAL The elevation to set the Story to.

Return Value

Whether the elevation is successfully changed.

Remarks

(Orso, 2018.10.23): SetStoryElevations wants mm and needs the story to have an associated design layer, or it will fail.
