is there any code to set only all inner layer into supress unconnected pads? and a selection of plot mode for power/gnd plane to set posive o negative?
You can control the unused pads suppression from Setup>Unused Pads Suppression, check the options to suppress the pads as required.
You can control the Artwork for planes through Setup>Cross-Section but you probably want to stick with positive.
In reply to oldmouldy:
im making a skill for set-up general parameters that can select either positive or negative plane will use in plot mode and to set suppress all inner layer. ihave this code and form that can select positive or negative but dont know how to call the checkbox..
fprintf(Gerber_Tool_Form "FIELD cmdSetArtParam\nFLOC 3 24\nMENUBUTTON \"set-up general param\"2 4\nENDFIELD\n")
fprintf(Gerber_Tool_Form "FIELD chknegative\nFLOC 3 27\nCHECKLIST\"negative_plane\"\nENDFIELD\n")
fprintf(Gerber_Tool_Form "FIELD chkpositive\nFLOC 3 29\nCHECKLIST\"positve_plane\"\nENDFIELD\n")
(defun initSetParamR74x ()
axlUIWPrint(Form "Setup Artwork Param!")
(out = outfile("./initSetParamR74x.scr"))
fprintf(out "%s\n" "setwindow pcb")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "trapsize 2435")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "film param")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "setwindow form.film_control")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "FORM film_control general_parameters")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "FORM film_control format_int_places 2")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "FORM film_control format_dec_places 5")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "FORM film_control gerber_rs274x YES")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "setwindow form.film_control")
if((deviceType == "1") then
fprintf(out "%s\n" "setwindow form.film_control positive YES") else
fprintf(out "%s\n" "setwindow form.film_control negative YES")
fprintf(out "%s\n" "FORM film_control ok")
In reply to seyerfred:
It sounds like you need to write a Call Back Function for your form. There you can save the selection to use in your main function.
In reply to aCraig:
yes thats right, but how? i also add this cmd
(negative_plane_selected = (Gerber_Tool_Form->curValue))
(positive_plane_selected = (Gerber_Tool_Form->curValue))
please help.. thank you
Take a look at the example form code at <allegro_install_dir>/share/pcb/form/basic
