    Anyone who has a better idea of getting the techfile's via?

    I tried this but its too slow.

    lxGetValidViaDefs(techGetTechFile(geGetEditCellView()))

    Thanks.

    I'm surprised it's slow. In my case it returned 541 viaDefs pretty much instantaneously. You can reduce the number it returns by giving the constraint group you're interested in - for example:

    lxGetValidViaDefs(geGetEditCellView() "virtuosoDefaultSetup")

    If you want to get all of them, you can also do:

    techGetTechFile(geGetEditCellView())~>viaDefs

    but I'd be surprised if this was any different in speed to lxGetValidViaDefs (I didn't check to see if lxGetValidViaDefs is doing anything else when given a techId).

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Sorry for pushing this thread up , but I just want to add a bit more information about lxGetValidViaDefs() in case someone run into the same problem in the future.

     I've noticed when calling this function in Virtuoso L (not XL mode) it's extremely slow but in XL mode it's almost instantaneous, I wonder if it has something to do with obtaining XL license everytime the function is called.

    This is the same issue as this post. It's fixed in IC616 under CCR 734527 and is indeed due to license checking. The function was primarily intended to be used in VLS XL (and so the license would already be checked out).

    Regards,

    Andrew.
