I have a measure that injects all the objects in an IDF file into the main idf file. It has been working on every file except one, the 5ZoneFanCoilDOAS_ERVOnAirLoopMainBranch.idf example file. Here are all the files.

#load the idf file
source_idf = OpenStudio::IdfFile::load(OpenStudio::Path.new(source_idf_path)).get
#add everything from the file
workspace.addObjects(source_idf.objects)

As far as I can tell, all the objects are successfully added, but Openstudio complains about Workspace.addObjects() being given an incompatible argument.

However, the in.idf was never generated and there is a new "run" error file referencing 'Workspace.addObjects' which doesn't exist in my measure any more since I replaced it with @mdahlhausen's code, not even as a comment.

how are you initializing your workspace object?

@mdahlhausen Invoking super to whatever parent class that goes to.
super(workspace, runner, user_arguments)

try something like:

source.objects.each do |obj|
  runner.registerInfo("#{obj}"}
  workspace.addObject(obj)
end

and see which object it is failing at.

@mdahlhausen I tried the code, and it outputted all the objects to the very last Output:Diagnostics object. The Openstudio run says the measure was applied successfully (see the images I added to post), but the in.idf was not created. There is still a new created "run" file listing an error with 'Workspace.addObjects' and that line no longer exists in the code, not even as a comment. I replaced the addObjects() function call with your code above.

Strangely, the code you gave me is outputting the commented !- == OBJECT TYPE == lines in the idf text file.
