I am trying to create a symbol view for a custom layout pCell that passes the parameters through to the underlying symbol. I know it goes something like ilInst~>prop of an ilLabel and uses sprintf() and pPar()
I assume you're trying to create a label on the symbol which will show the value of the parameter? If so, you need to add a label to the symbol, make sure it is type "ILLabel", and has the value which is a SKILL expression - such as "ilInst~>myprop" if mypropis the name of your property.Often this is done using a label with value "cdsParam(2)" - or something similar. cdsParam is a utility function which returns the value of a CDF parameter, and gives the user control over which of the CDF parameters should be displayed in that slot.Regards,Andrew.
