    create pin in the layout Reply

    Hi All,

     Is there any possibility to create pin in the layout where I click the mouse soon after loading the script? If yes,how?

    Presumably "the script" you are talking about is this one (it's hard to know since you started a separate thread with  no link to the previous one).

    Something like this:

     procedure(CCFcreatePins(@key (cvId geGetEditCellView()) (pinWidth 0.5) (pinOrigin 0:0) (pinPitch 1.2:0) (pinLayer "Metal1")
        (pinDirection "input") (busPin "pinname<1:10>"))
      foreach(pinName dbProduceMemName(busPin)
        ; create the pin shape, then the net (if it doesn't already exist), and then create the pin
        pinFig=dbCreateRect(cvId pinLayer list(pinOrigin xCoord(pinOrigin)+pinWidth:yCoord(pinOrigin)+pinWidth))
        net=dbMakeNet(cvId pinName)
        pin=dbCreatePin(net pinFig)
        ; make sure the terminal direction is what we want too

    procedure(CCFcreatePinsDoneCB(w done pts)
        CCFcreatePins(?cvId geGetEditCellView(w) ?pinOrigin car(pts))

      enterPoint(?prompts '("Enter location of first pin") ?doneProc "CCFcreatePinsDoneCB")


    Call CCFcreatePinsPrompt() and it will then ask you to point at the start of the bus pin. I'll leave it to you to adapt to your needs.
