hi All,i would like to add automatically the cellname of the cell. I would like it to be placed in the border of the sheet.I can modifiy the borders in US_8ths. Is there any label I could add to include the cellname?and maybe further the library name?Is there also another way to do it? Skill?Thks in advance,Axel
There are a couple of ways you could do this.1. Add a label with value [@cellName] - make the label type "NLPLabel".2. Add a label with value ilInst~>cellView~>cellName - make the label type "ILLabel"(do this on the master of the sheet symbol).Regards,Andrew.
Thanks a lot...it is working well.Could you let me know where I could get further info about the syntax of these NLP and ILL labels?Thks in advance,Axel
A next question...my library US_8ths is locked and I can't update these sheet borders.As a consequence, I had to make a copy of the library to my own directory.Then, how could I tell cadence that the library to use for Sheets is my new one?Or, maybe do you know how to freeze an object on the virtuoso (schematics) window in order to avoid it moves when I try to make a multiple object selection?Thanks in advance,Best regards,Axel
Search in /comphelp/comphelp.pdf for NLPLabel and you'll see various info on NLPLabel and ILLabel. Essentially NLPLabels can look up property or attribute values, whereas ILLabels are an arbitrary SKILL expression to do whatever you want.You can define your own sheet library by setting the schSheetMasters variable. Take a look in /tools/dfII/samples/local/schConfig.il for an example definition - this shows the default value - which you can then override in your .cdsinit or by typing in the CIW.You'll find that sheet masters only have the "instance" or "selection" box defined over the title region - so that it only gets selected if you select in the corner containing the title box. If you limit the size of the selection box, you can only select it if you click in that area.Regards,Andrew.
In reply to archive:
I like to get layout cell ID to display when cells are placed at next level of hierarchy.
I used it before, but can not remember nor can I find a example in cadence documentation.
I place three text in a cell like this.
Then I need to add property to each text label "NLPLabel" .
Like I listed below here, but I am missing something.
[@cellName] on layer "text" in a layout cell with the follow GUI inputs.
Add propert to text label [@cellName]
Name = NLPLabel
In reply to youtoo:
It is not a property that you are setting. The label itself has an attribute called labelType that you must set to NLPLabel. You can select and existing label and run:
hiEditPropList(car(geGetSelSet())) ;for me this is Alt-q bindkey
Change labelType from "normalLabel" to "NLPLabel".
