How can I save the current display layers I have in my layout by using SKILLcommand?? I looked at the SKILL vocabulary, I cant find
any command that would apply to this case??
Here is the steps I have to do manually to save my display layers :
From the LSW window: Edit-->Save-->(select File button) then enter the name I want to save to...
Thanks for your help
Are you trying to save the display setting for LSW to a display.drf file? You can just use command drDumpDrf to dump out the drf info to a file.
Thanks for answering my question.. But it seems the SKILL command drDumpDrf doesnt do what I want..
Here is what I want:
example: In a layout, I have M1, M2 and poly layers visible and I want to save that setting . I can do that manually by
From the LSW window-->Edit-->Save--> ( I can save it to a file).. Now if I want to load up that setting, I can do: drLoadDrf("file"),
it will load up my setting properly..
The SKILL command drDumpDrf will save the setting to a file but when I try drLoadDrf("file"), it doesnt load up my setting properly..
drDumpDrf and drLoadDrf are nothing to do with what is visible or not - that's just saving the display resource information (packets, colors, line styles etc).
Which version of the tools are you using?
The OPUS version I am using is 6.1.5..
Please show me on how to save the current layers setting by SKILL command.. Now, I only know how to save the setting
LSW->Edit->Save-> (save to a file) then load it up by: drLoadDrf("file").. Quite tedious..:(
OK, you must be using the old LSW (not the layer palette?). The function to save the LSW info is a private function.
BTW, you should use load() not drLoadDrf() to load it...
However, which aspects of what's in this file do you really want? Maybe I can just write a cut-down version?
