Hi all, Assuming that there is the first layout view, open it and select ,visiable some layers in LSW.How to automatically restore to the initial status of LSW ,when I open the second layout cell belong with the same library. is there any this switch ?Thanks
You could use:techRefreshTechFile(tfId)
Or, more specifically:techRefreshTechFile(techGetTechFile(geGetEditCellView()))
In reply to dmay:
As you say,we can use this function. Our layout engineers had to use a bindkey for the function.
Maybe, This is a intricacy operation for some layout engineers. They want to be automatically restored to the original state when open the second layout view as same as opening layout view of different library.
Actually,I would like to get a default switch of tools.Otherwise, I need to create my switch for the part of engineer.That must change the code for tool. It's my last choice.
How to automatically open the other layout view belong with same library?
Exist that default switch ? Or, You have a good idea.
In reply to Provence:
Do you use PDK?
If yes, you could try PDK utility from tsmc
Which version of Virtuoso are you using?
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
I'd appreciate any feedback.
You could use deRegUserTriggers to define either an appTrigger or postInstallTrigger for "maskLayout". This would trigger some code to run when you open a new layout window. In this code you could do whatever you want to the LSW.
In IC616 you'll be able to either have the palette (the new LSW) synchronized or desynchronized so that the visibility etc can be managed separately per window if you want.
In IC5141, Derek's suggestion is the best bet.
