Hi all,I have a script that places external DRC's into a design based off of some checks that are performed. Mostly spacing checks.
I'm trying to generate a list of only the external DRC's by using the command: axlSelectByProperty("DRC", "EXTERNAL_VIOLATION_DESCRIPTION")However it always return: nil
If I use the following code I can get my list:
axlSetFindFilter(?enabled (list "noall" "DRCS") ?onButtons (list "DRCS"))Drc_List = axlGetSelSet(axlAddSelectAll())
then I can use to determine what type of DRC each on is:
foreach((drc Drc_List drc_t = drc-> type println(drc_t))) --->
"DESIGN""DESIGN""EXTERNAL REFERENCE""EXTERNAL REFERENCE""EXTERNAL REFERENCE""EXTERNAL REFERENCE""EXTERNAL REFERENCE"
I have tried various syntax for the axlSelectByProperty() command but always get nil returned.
Am I using the command correctly? If not can somebody help me with the correct syntax?
Thanks in advance,
An easier and faster method:
design = axlDBGetDesign()
waivedDRCs = setof(item design->drcs item->type == "EXTERNAL REFERENCE")
If user might have waived some them also do 'setof' on deisgn->waived
Thanks a lot!
This method is working and is much better than the path I was going down.
As for the axlSelectByProperty method, I used that as a referance from some skill code that I found on line. Looks like maybe a property name has changed between Allegro releases...
