I am using IC6.1 and amd trying to simulate a circuit. My netlisting runs fine. But when I simulate from ADE-GXL, it gives me a whole bunch of errors on CIW as below. I have not used "currentFormSave" as a variable in my test-edtor and don't have much clue where it is coming from. Any help?
*Error* eval: unbound variable - currentFormSave
<<< Stack Trace >>>
(... in /* (asiAnalysisForm) */ asiFormFieldObjCB ...)
form = formStruct@0x221f3a78
formFieldList = (asiiAnalysisRadioField tran_asiiOptionsFormButton tran_asiiAnalysisNameLabel analysisFormFrame tran_enable tran_frame1 tran_stop tran_label1 tran_errpreset tran_tranNoiseFrame1 tran_tranNoise tran_tranDynframe tran_dynParam)
editable = (asiiAnalysisRadioField tran_asiiOptionsFormButton tran_asiiAnalysisNameLabel analysisFormFrame tran_enable tran_frame1 tran_stop tran_label1 tran_errpreset tran_tranNoiseFrame1 tran_tranNoise tran_tranDynframe tran_dynParam)
nonEditable = nil
enabled = (asiiAnalysisRadioField tran_asiiOptionsFormButton tran_asiiAnalysisNameLabel analysisFormFrame tran_enable tran_frame1 tran_stop tran_label1 tran_errpreset tran_tranNoiseFrame1 tran_tranNoise tran_tranDynframe tran_dynParam)
disabled = nil
highlight = nil
currentFormSave = unbound......
There's an issue in the code (this is CCR 869393, which should be fixed in IC616 ISR3, by the looks of things) where it breaks if the current form (as returned by hiGetCurrentForm()) returned "unbound". This can happen if the form object is now out of scope - usually caused by the symbol for a form being included in a let.
I can't reproduce it myself (from a very quick attempt), but it's quite likely coming from some customization at your site where the form symbol has been included in a let. However, as a workaround, you may be able to solve it by bringing up a form (e.g. Options->User Preferences in the CIW) and fiddling with it (so that hiGetCurrentForm() doesn't return unbound any more) before opening the ADE XL view.
If that doesn't help, please contact customer support.
