I am working on EnergyPlus and modelling dynamic glazing which change their properties according to solar gain... and by applying them with shading devices, the glazing visible transmittance have to change but the output doesn't show that.

Is there a way for output the glazing properties in details in EnergyPlus?

After a successful simulation, open the eplusout.rdd and look for interesting variables.

Assuming you use for example a WindowProperty:ShadingControl with Shading Control Type set to SwitchableGlazing, you'll for example find these variables:

Zone,Average,Surface Window Switchable Glazing Switching Factor []
Zone,Average,Surface Window Switchable Glazing Visible Transmittance []
