    How to really knows a lib / cell is not exists anymore ? Reply

     Dear All,

    I have a cell is from LibA/A cell , it contains LibB/B cell and LibC/C cell ,  When I open A cell , it's  fine.

    But  LibB and LibC is removed from cds.lib , A cell stills looks fine ,  but when stream out gds ,

    it shows a Error  (XSTR M-166) ,....Ensure that the master cell view ...

     

    How do I know the LibB/C and LibC/C is really can't stream out?

    Thank you,

    Charley

    Charley,

    Do you mean that you've deleted the cds.lib entry after it has been opened in Virtuoso?

    ddGetObj(libName cellName) would return nil if it's not available on disk. 

    However, if you tried doing a view refresh in Virtuoso having deleted a library entry, it may complain if the cellViews are still in memory - and say that it hasn't actually deleted the library entry in memory.

    Not really sure what you're trying to achieve here.

    Kind Regards,

    Andrew.

     Andrew ,

     

    ddGetObj(libName cellName)  will work correct when user restart layoutPlus again ,

    if cellview is not exist , it won't return value.

    But , now is as below:

     A user has LibA/A cell , B user has LibB/B cell and LibC/C cell 

    When A user open cell which references LibB/B and LibC/C , it's OK , 

    But B user reomve LibB/LibC from its cds.lib

    The problem is that all data are still in memory ,  ddGetObj(libName cellName) will return value ,

     

    Thank you,

    Charley

    If the library is no longer referenced on disk, and you've done a refresh, then member("libName" ddGetLibList()~>name) will return nil, even though ddGetObj("libName" "cellName" "viewName") may still return the object.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
