I am new to the community. I managed to be working using Skill language on a plugin to Cadence. I run into a problem i read otput list through asiGetOutputList and i manipulate the items and change some naming and need to update the list. I do update the values but it can't be refreshed throught the ADE window. The list is not changed automatically it needs and external event like press Run button.I needt to be able to do the whole thing at once.
I'm answering this here rather than via the direct email you sent me (I prefer people not to send me direct messages instead of posting on the forum, as it gives others the chance to respond too).
Anyway, there is no public SKILL API to "set" the outputs back again, with the exception of sevExportOutputsToFile and sevImportOutputsFromFile (there are three versions of these functions, ToCSV, ToFile and ToTxt, and similarly for the Import). These are in IC61X only - even then I think it's IC615.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
sevExportOutputsToFile is not defined i run 6.15 and it gave me the following error.
*Error* eval: undefined function - sevExportOutputsToFile..
I need something like write to file indirectly without poping up a dialog.
In reply to Yassien:
However asiSetOutputList(session list) is defined but doesn't refresh the outputlist
sevExportOutputsToFile was added in a hotfix of IC615 (I'm not sure which one - don't really have time to go and check). It's certainly there in IC615 ISR15. sevExportOutputsToTxt is there in IC615 Base version though.
asiSetOutputList is a private function. Part of the reason is that you cannot use it in isolation (it needs some supporting functions to go along with it), which is why it doesn't work for you.
I am really greatful for your help, but is there any other way of refreshing the outputlist in the ADE other than sevExportOutputsToFile
Not without using private SKILL functions (which I'm not going to reveal in a public forum; maybe going to customer support with an explanation of what you are trying to acheive might help?). Did you try sevExportOutputsToTxt?
the problem with sevExportOutputsToTxt is that it force a dialog to pop up and you sate where you want to savge the file which i don't want. I need it to be transperent to the user not to see the dialog..
I just checked, and even the new functions prompt you for a file.
You will need to contact customer support.
Thanks alot Andrew for your help
