  • Re: Getting schematic instances from multiple open schematics

    Thanks. Both are excellent suggestions. But I'm doing this to select instances for an ADE-XL session. So I found an easier way to do this & tired using "asiSelectInst" with this code: ;get a unique form handle win = sprintf( nil "%s" hiGetCurrentWindow() ) form = concat( 'iphdcopTabForm...
