I am using the CCSslotMetal.il file as one call from a user-defined banner menu, related to this post -http://www.cadence.com/Community/forums/p/24050/1316397.aspx#1316397
Whether calling the slot metal script from CIW or from the menu, it does not load the current/active entry layer, as the script describes, into the form.
Also, if I select a different layer from the form, close the form, change my active entry layer, then call the script/form again, the previously selected layer in the form is still the one shown - not the active layer. It behaves as if the form is hard coded to bring up the same layer on first load, then saves the layer selected each time the form is touched, but does not automatically populate with the active entry layer when called.
As you can see on my other post (re menu link above), I am trying to build a menu of items, using an Update function to help with testing new code as I go - this SlotMetal script being one item. I have done a simple test by changing the slotMetal formTitle, then attempting to reload the script to see the change. So far I can't get the form updated by load("") in the CIW, or by using the Menu->Update() function. The only thing that updates the source code and reflects in the form, is closing and restarting my Virtuoso session.
Do you have any insight?
