I have a list of string values representing the IPC id's submitted using SKILL.
eg: ipcList = ("ipc:15" "ipc:16" "ipc:20") etc,
I would like to query their status using ipcIsAliveProcess() and ipcReadProcess().
ipcStatus = ipcIsAliveProcess(nth(0 ipcList)),
but, I'm unable to do so as the datatypes do not match. Is there a way I can convert these "string" data values to "o_childId" type. Kindly guide me in solving this prolem.
Thanks in advance,
Thank you for your quick reply.
The code is a part of much larger, GUI based script. It actually submits and moitors the various jobs given by the user. I am basically storing the jobs and their corresponding ipcIds as choices inside a report field "hiCreateReportField" as passing values becomes easy and I can minimise my "variables" count (in my opinion), but report field takes in only string, float and int as values. Hence the string list.
My typical Report Field display in my GUI,
Sl.No Cell Name Job Name Job Status
1 NandGate DRC Running
2 NorGate LVS Complete
3 Inverter DRC Running
And, If I cannot convert the string to other dataTypes, then I
guess I will have to maintain a separate list variable to work on and
then pass it to the GUI report field as choices.
Thank a lot :)
