I am trying to understand how the form works in SKILL. Hence, I read thru the agroskill.pdf and tried to run the 2 sample skill, myExtractViews.il and formpop.il. However, I got those errors:-
Skill > load "myExtractViews.il "function myExtractViews redefinedfunction _extract redefinedfunction _formAction redefinedfunction myExtract redefinedtSkill > myExtract()E- *Error* axlFormTitle: argument #1 should be any user-defined (other) type (type template = "ot") - nilERRORSkill >
Skill > load "formpop.il"function _popAction redefinedfunction myPop redefinedtSkill > myPop()"Error! Could not create form."E- *Error* axlFormTitle: argument #1 should be any user-defined (other) type (type template = "ot") - nilERROR
Can anyone help? how to solve the error? also, any sample of the skill using form for me to learn ?
Thanks a lot =)
I cannot fine the attach icon, so I am copying the skill code as below:-
; myExtractViews.il; -- Displays a form with a selection list of; the available extract definition files; -- Lets the user select any of the files on; the list as the “View file”; -- Starts Allegro extract process with the; user-selected View file when; the user picks Done from the form.; Function to extract user selected view to the output file.
(defun myExtractViews (viewFile outFile)axlExtractToFile( viewFile outFile)); defun myExtractViews; Function to start the view extraction
(defun _extract ()myExtractViews(buildString(list(cadr(parseString(axlGetVariable("TEXTPATH"))) selectedFile) "/")"myextract.dat")); defun _extract; Form callback function to respond(defun _formAction (form)(case form->curField("done"(axlFormClose form)(axlCancelEnterFun)(_extract)t)("cancel"(axlFormClose form)(axlCancelEnterFun)nil)("view_file"(if form->curValue(progn; Accept user input only if on listif(member( form->curValue fileList)then axlFormSetField( form"view_file" form->curValue)else axlFormRestoreField(form "view_file"))))t)("file_list"(axlFormSetField form "view_file"form->curValue)selectedFile = form->curValuet)); case); defun _formAction; User-callable function to set up and; display the Extract Selector form
(defun myExtract ()fileList = (cdr (cdr (getDirFilescadr( parseString( axlGetVariable("TEXTPATH"))))))form = axlFormCreate( (gensym)"extract_selector.form" '("E" "OUTER")'_formAction t)axlFormTitle( form "Extract Selector")axlFormSetField( form "view_file" (car fileList))selectedFile = (car fileList)foreach( fileName fileListaxlFormSetField( form "file_list" fileName))axlFormDisplay( form)); defun myExtract
; formpop.il - Create and display a form with a popup; Form call back function to respond to user selection of any field in the form(defun _popAction (form) (case form->curField ("done" (axlFormClose form) (axlCancelEnterFun) t) ("change_pop" (case already_changed (0;Use display/dispatch string pairs axlFormBuildPopup(form "my_popup" list( list("NewPopup A" "mynewpopup_a") list("NewPopup B" "mynewpopup_b"))) axlFormSetField(form "my_popup" "My First Popups") ) (1;Display string/dispatch integer pairs axlFormBuildPopup(form "my_popup" list( list("NewPopup 12" 12) list("NewPopup 5" 5))) axlFormSetField(form "my_popup" "My Second Popups") ) (t;String is both display and dispatch axlFormBuildPopup(form "my_popup" list( "MyPopNValue1" "MyPopNValue2")) axlFormSetField(form "my_popup" "My Third Popups") ) ) already_changed++ t) ("my_popup" printf( "Got my_popup event: form->curValue %s", form->curValue) if( form->curValue (progn axlFormSetField( form "my_popup" form->curValue))) t) ); case ); defun _popAction; User-callable function to set up and; display the Extract Selector form
(defun myPop () form = axlFormCreate( (gensym) "popup.form" '("E" "OUTER") '_popAction t) if( axlIsFormType(form) then (print "Created form successfully.") else (print "Error! Could not create form.")) axlFormTitle( form "Try My Popup") mypopvalue = "my_start_popup" axlFormSetField( form "my_popup" mypopvalue) axlFormDisplay( form) already_changed = 0); defun myPop
It looks like you should execute "myExtract()" not "myExtractViews()" . Make sure you have the .form file in your FORMPATH or the current working directory.
There are other form examples at $CDSROOT/share/pcb/examples/skill/form. One of my favorites is "axlform" in the basic directory. It has an example of all the basic form features.
