One Attribute to set up many DC characteristics

Hi Everyone Here.

Im doing some DC testings, and looking how far can go with it.

I like to build a dropdown list on a custom attribute that allows to change many other attributes from the DC.
IE, 3 types of Light Gauge Profiles Studs to choice. Any option defines 4 singular characteristics of the selected profile, like Weight, sizes (x,z), price, thickness, etc.

Can you give me a hint to do that!.
Thanks !!.

See the CHOOSE and OPTIONINDEX functions - they should do what you want.

Thanks Jim for your quick response.
I tried this before without getting good results. That was first option i thought, but cant use both to achieve the result.

The choose demo shows only one attribute changing while you scale the box… i want to change many and by a dropdown list.

Is there an example of these two working together to see the potential they have?

Thanks Mike, but this only changes geometry.

My idea is more like.

I set 3 types of wall in an attribute.
i choose the desired kind of wall trough a dropdown list.
That give me a result.
Depending on that result, 4 attributes change. Wall_weight, Wall_width_, Wall_cost and Wall_materials.
Those 4 attributes can be in different combinations, depending on the election in the Wall_type attribute…

How can i setup this?
Thanks !.
