I want to create layout instances with the function 'dbCreateInst' of an instance that has some parameters, let say "width" and "length"
However with the following code-line, it is not possible to specify the parameters.
(dbCreateInst (getEditRep) (dbOpenCellViewByType library "myCell" "layout") nil (list xpoint ypoint) "R0")
When using the graphical interface : 'leHiCreateInst' we are able to change the default values of the parameters and then we can see them selecting the instance and typing : css()~>prop~>??
But when I use dbCreateInst to create the instance, there is : 'nil' in the 'prop' field ...
Does anyone know how to insert a cell with parameter, or how to change the parameters after insertion ?
Thanks for any piece of advice.
dbCreateParamInst( d_cellView d_master t_name l_point l_orient [ x_numInst [ l_params ] ] )

Your fully right,
How come I haven't found that before ?! Thanks for your help.
In reply to ebecheto:
Is it possible to add an extra parameter for the exisiting instance.
say, i want to lock(shouldn't be able to perform move or stretch commands) the position..??
