I'm trying to generate a skill program that launches place manual -hide and then picks a specific coordinate to pick up the component placed in that coordinate.
I know that I have a pin placed in 0,0 and would like the skill program to pick that coordinate and leave the component on the mouse for me to place manually.
I've tried doing the following
axlShell("place manual -h")
axlShell("pick 0 0")
and I've also tried running a script that I've recorded that does the exact same, but both methods fail. They do launch the place manual command but I cannot get skill to pick that coordinate so that it is left for me to move the component
Does anyone have some good ideas, thanks.
I think I understand what you are trying to do.Here is a couple ways of handling this:From the Allegro Command line via a script: place manual -h ; pick 0 0From inside of Allegro SKILL axlShell("place manual -h ; pick 0 0")I am sure there is different ways of performing this inside ofAllegro SKILL but the basic command above do what you arelooking for.Hope this helps,Mike CatramboneUTStarcom, Inc.
