I encountered a problem on converting shape type to dynamic using axlShapeChangeDynamicType.
the code looks somthing like this:
shape = axlDBCreateRectangle(list(0:0 100:100), t, "etch/pwr01" nil )
axlShapeChangeDynamicType(car(shape) t t)
When I input the following, static shape is created but when i try to change it to dynamic type it returns nil and the shape is not changed to dynamic. I tried using the same code to other shape(other than rectangular) but it works well.
You cannot change a rectangle to a dynamic shape. It is more efficient to create a boundary shape then to change a static shape to dynamic. With axlDBCreateShape pass the layer class as BOUNDRAY (example "BOUNDARY/PWR01")
