    Skill code for accessing properties of a pin shape in Layout view Reply
    I am trying to generate text labels for several pins in the layout. This layout was generated by importing a LEF. I need to access the following for each pin: Layer, Bounding Box, Terminal Name. Once I have this information, I can add labels based on the Terminal Name on appropriate layers. Any help in this regards would be appreciated.

    Hi Mandeep,

    I assume that you have access to SourceLink (is it the same login name and password as for accessing the forum?), in which case, take a look at Solution 11138210 on SourceLink.  I am sure that there are other solutions out there, but this is the first one that I found that seems to meet your requirements.

    You will see for each shape that the following attributes are accessed: lpp, bBox, term~>name (the first is not the layer name as you ask, but the layer-purpose pair).

    Regards,

    Lawrence.
