I've written an Ocean script that works fine from CIW and ADE L defined as an output: ocnEval("./noise_summary.ocn").
However when trying to plug it in as an "OCEAN script" output in ADEXL, it cannot catch the session axlGetWindowSession() - actually, checking the Job.log, it doesn't even manage to do a hiGetCurrentWindow(). Giving directly the "usual" session name (e.g. "session0") doesn't work either.
If I do a dummy change to my script (e.g. changing a comment) and come back to ADEXL clicking on the "Re-evaluate results" button, I get my summary for the last corner run... (and of course, "session0" as the session name).Is there a way to get the session name so that my script is executed through each corner in ADE XL?
Thanks for your help,Kind regards,Matthieu

Thanks for your quick answer!
I'm indeed using openResults(). My script looks like this:
resultDir = openResults() V=listToVector(parseString(resultDir "/")) sdb = axlGetMainSetupDB(axlGetWindowSession()) ;# session database historyname=V ;# ="Interactive.xxx" hist=axlGetHistoryEntry(sdb historyname) rdbPath=axlGetHistoryResults(hist) rdb=axlReadResDB(rdbPath) ;# results database pt = rdb->point(1) corner = cadr(pt->outputs())->cornerName test = caadr(axlGetTests(sdb)) ;# should be the same as V resultDir_dd = axlGetPointRunDir(hist test ?cornerName corner ?designPointId 1) resultDir = strcat(resultDir_dd "/psf")
So basically, I need the sdb to access the "corner" and "test" informations for my summary, but it's my 1st ocn script with ADEXL... maybe you'd know of a simpler / more straightforward way?
In reply to Matth83:
I don't understand why you need to do any of this - if you didn't do any of those statements, the results would already be open for the specific point already. So you can immediately start doing things like v("/out" ?result 'tran) or VT("/mynode") or whatever.
Actually, my script creates a summary file for each corner. The file name is defined by the corner&test names which I can get only through axlSkill functions (as used in my previous post) that require a session name. Is there a way to get the corner and the test names without these functions? (almost all axlSkill functions require the session database handle).
I couldn't get the axlGetCornerNameForCurrentPointInRun() function running (even placed at the beginning of my script).
That works for me - I can do:
sprintf(fileName "./myFile%s_%s.out" axlGetCornerNameForCurrentPointInRun() axlGetTemperatureForCurrentPointInRun())
and then the filename includes both the corner name (if it's a corner, or "" otherwise), and the temperature. You can also access design variables using VAR("varName") (bear in mind that the VAR() will return a float most likely. so you might need to convert to a string.
