Is there a way to add layer gds stream numbers (extracted from the techfile with the lpp) to the LSW display?
I am using v5.1.41
hmmm....as an alternative to modifying the GUI with a new column of gds numbers, there is no way that for example a SKILL script could extract the layer name and gds number from the techfile, concatenate the two separated by say 3 dashes, and populate the LSW with this new layer name and unaltered purpose string...? Create a new list of lpp's to populate the LSW with?
Does that sound possible?
You could use the "Abbreviation" column in the techPurposes and techLayers sections of the technology file. These are generally used to make a shorter name for displaying in the LSW, but you could add the number without affecting the real name. For example, the purpose drawing has an abbreviation of drw. You could have a datatype number like drw--0 and a layer number like metal1--15. You'll need to widen your LSW so you can see the full name.
leSetLSWBBox(bBox).cdsenv variable:layout lswLPIconPurposeLength int 3
I will try this out...
