Hi all ,
Is it possible add context to Find Marker , i have a instance hierarchy list .
i hope easy to find the instance in schematic that like Find Marker function .
Can you expand your question? I don't understand what you mean by "Is it possible add context to Find Marker". So please give more details.
Also, what version are you using?
Hi andrew ,
my composer version : 5141 ISR140
i have instance hierarchy list like :
i wish easy to find and search instance in schematic .
the function like "Find Marker" , when i click instance list line .
the instnace will be highlight and jump to schematic .
In IC61, in Schematic XL, you have the "Navigator" assistant which allows you to easily traverse the hierarchy. In IC614 there's a search built in to that, but you also have the Search assistant. This makes it very easy to find stuff, because it can then open lower level schematics (in tabs) and zoom/pan to selected instances automatically.
In IC5141, your best bet is probably Edit->Search->Find, and set the search scope to hierarchy, and then search for the leaf part of the hierarchy (e.g. MM7). There's also "Zoom to Object" on this form.
i will try it !
You can write a little recursive routine to do this. The main Cadence functions to use would be:
instId = dbFindAnyInstByName(geGetEditCellView() instName)geSwitch(hiGetCurrentWindow() "r" instId 0 0 0)
This would be very easy to implement for your examples. It gets a little trickier when you have iterated instances (like myInst<0:7>). The dbFindAnyInstByName will not find myInst<1>, but would only find the entire name.
Here is how you might implement this for your examples:
procedure(mySchDescend(path) let((pathList) pathList = parseString(path "/") instId = dbFindAnyInstByName(geGetEditCellView() car(pathList)) geSwitch(hiGetCurrentWindow() "r" instId 0 0 0) when(pathList = cdr(pathList) mySchDescend(buildString(pathList "/")) ) ))mySchDescend("XI_BIASOSC/XI146/MN1")
