    To get list of instance name which fall into specified area using Encounter Reply

    Hi,

    Is there any way to get the list of instance names which fall into specified area.

    For example if i have a area specified by say x1,y1 and x2,y2 .

    i need the instances name which occupy this area.

    Thanks

    suraj

     Hi Suraj,

    Try dbQueryInstInBox.

     Kari,

      Can I assume that command works regardless of whether or not the GUI is up and running (i.e. in -nowin mode)?  I know that some commands take advantage of being able to GUI-select the objects within a certain coordinate space and then iterate through the selected objects.

    Thanks,

    JG

    Thanks a lot kari for the quick reply......its working.......

    This is what is used

    foreach inst [dbQueryInstInBox 4660880 3139920 4688320 3161480] {

    puts [dbInstName $inst]

    }

    and iam getting all the instance names which fall into that area. we need not select instances in this case.

     JG - good question! I have never tried this. If you test it out, let us know what you find.

     

    Suraj - glad it's working for you!

    i got the instance names which fall in that area specified.

    i need this because i have a requirement like -

    my design is timing closed and  i found that my design has insufficient decap cells .we have internal tool to find required decap and add decap cells in those areas.But tool couldnot add enough decap cells in some areas due to lack of space and tool indicates those areas by markers. To make room for adding decap cells in those areas i need to move instances in those areas. but iam afraid that if i move instances it will effect my timing.

             so before moving those instances i would check the slack for these instances and move only those instances which have enough margin.

    Thanks

    suraj
