I have only pins in the layout and I want to attach a label to it. Unfortunatelly the 'children' cannot be set.
Anyone knows how to set it correctly?
Here is the example of my code.
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt;
mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";
mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";
dbCreateLabel(cv list(f1~>layerName "label" ) centerBox(f1~>bBox)
p1~>net~>name "centerLeft" "R0" "roman" 0.5)))
*Error* setSGq: (DB-370034): dbSetq: Cannot set attribute - children
You can set the parent attribute on the pin shape instead. However, you shoud create textDisplays for pins rather than labels. A textDisplay will display the pin name (much like a label), but when the pin's connectivity/name changes, the display's value will change as well. The textDisplay will also be attached to the pin automatically since it by nature is a child of the pin.
dbCreateTextDisplay( d_associateId d_ownerId ( tx_layer [ t_purpose ] ) l_displayFlags l_point t_just t_orient t_font x_height [ g_isDrafted [ g_isOverbar [ g_isVisable [ g_isNameVisible [ g_isValueVisible [ t_attrOrParamName [ g_isParamAssoc ] ] ] ] ] ] ] )
In reply to dmay:
That was exactly what I was missing. Now I have the same behaviour as when I click on the button : Create Pin. I mean by that, that the text moves with the square rectangle. I was just curious how to use dbCreateTextDisplay. I saw in one of your other post that the two first argument could be (should be?) similar.
p1=car(term~>pins) ;let supose term has only one pin
f1=car(p1~>figs) ;let supose p1 has only objType "rect"
unless(f1~>children ; when no attached text Display, let us create one (not a label, even if similar)
disp=dbCreateTextDisplay( term term list(f1~>layerName "label" ) t centerBox(f1~>bBox) "centerLeft" "R0" "roman" 0.5)
disp~>isNameVisible=nil ;makes the 'name=' invisible
disp~>parent=p1~>fig ;makes the text moving with the rect pin
; and now f1~>children is not nil => so a can re-run the script
In reply to ebecheto:
Sorry for necroposting, but i found this page very useful, so i adding my code to automaticly generate labels on all selected pins
foreach(X geGetSelectedSet() net = X~>net disp=dbCreateTextDisplay( net X list("TEXT" "drawing" ) t centerBox(X~>bBox) "centerCenter" "R0" "roman" 2 nil nil t nil t "name" nil))
