    help on "geAddInstProbe" Reply

    hi all,

    I am currently writing a script that will probe instances by using "geAddInstProbe" that meets my specified requirement.
    To why I want to do this, is because my top-level schematics chip or macro level, all instances supply nets are defined via netset property assignement or supply pin net expression or explicit signal. So I am not able to probe or highlight for example a power net and see which blocks are sharing the same supply.

    Now it is only working on the current cellview and only if the block has netset porperty and value. If I try to push or EIP into the block to probe again, evaluated name of the supply is different to the local value. Is there a possibilty to extract in skillmode the evaluated name of a supply pin which was defined several hierarchies above?

     Btw, I am using virtuoso  Schem Editor 6.1.4-64b.500.11

    Hi guys,

    I found already what I was looking for. it turns out that my copy of SkCompRef was overwritten with older version. FYI, but thanks anyway,
