  • Re: Making a Form with a Scrollbar?
    Like eDave suggests use a STRFILLIN  with the multiline option. The following form file snippet will create a 16 width by 10 high control with a vertical scrollbar that will support up to 1024 characters. Using the FSIZE parameter is what allows a taller control.

  • Re: Problem with scripts that require file browsers
    If writing a Skill program you look at axlDMFileBrowse which will invoke a file browser and give you control over most of the features available with the browser. For allowing a user to select a directory you can use axlDMDirectoryBrowse.

  • Re: How to Move a Die Pin in Skill
    If the move command also cannot move the pin you may need to add the UNFIX_PINS property to the symbol instance or  at the design level (if you want to enable moving pins on symbols within the design)

After the cset is created you can then set of min lines spacing at the cset level.You ...
