I just recently noticed a "Description" property attached to some package symbols in Allegro (see screenshot). However, when I opened up the package drawing, I can't find where to adjust that description. I know that I can access and change it in the board file, but I also know that I didn't add them there.
How do we retrieve and update these property that are on the design root itself when using Symbool Editor?This is the scenario, I'm planning update all my mechanical outline symbols and attaching a user-defined property onto it - axlDBAddProp(list(nil) list("PANEL_NAME" list("VIJAY-PNL")))
This works fine and I am able to retrieve this information once I import this symbol into a layout design.My question is, if I wanted to updated the information on this property in symbol editor, how do I do it?
axlDBGetProperties(o_dbid [lt_type])⇒ l_result/nil
In the symbol editor, what's the dbid that I need to select in order to retrieve these root properties?
