    Executing/Loading SKILL scripts after PCB editor has come up Reply

     I have written some SKILL scripts and added their entries in allegro.ilinit. These scripts run fine when PCB Editor is coming up.

    But now I have an requirement that I want to run some SKILL scripts after the PCB Editor has come up. These scripts manipulate the .BRD files automatically without any user intervention. Also since these scripts use axlXXXX functions I cannot add these scripts in allegro.ilinit

    Can anyone provide help on

    1) Is there a way to execute/load SKILL scripts after the PCB editor has come up (I know we can do it by typing [skill load "<filename>" ]

        But it needs the user to type this in the PCB command interpreter. But I need automated way of calling my scripts

    I think that this question would be better asked in the PCB SKILL forum.

    I don't know for Allegro, but on the IC side we can set user-defined application triggers that will execute after an application such as the Composer Schematic Editor has come up - perhaps you can search in the documentation to see if there are triggers for Allegro?

    regards,

    Lawrence.
