    What is the environment variable for the name of the via to place?

    I've got all the other variables:

     envSetVal("layout" "viaMode" 'cyclic "Single")
     envSetVal("layout" "viaRows" 'int 2)
     envSetVal("layout" "viaColumns" 'int 1)

    In CIW it's:

    le0ViaForm->viaSingleModeScrollView->viaDefName->value="via3"

    But I can find no environment variable like this when I do: Options->Save Defaults

    with everything turned on.

    Hi Michael,

    I think that this is what you are looking for:

    envSetVal("layout" "useDefaultVia" 'boolean nil)

    envSetVal("layout" "userVia" 'string  "name_of_any_valid_via" )

    This was taken from Solution 11248244

    If the default via defined in the techfile is adequate, then set useDefaultVia to 't'.

    Regards,

    Lawrence.

    Thanks Lawrence, but I should have more specific.

    I'm using 6.1.4 and NOT using VXL.

    It appears in the solution they are using 5.1 and VXL.

    Lawrence,

    These are the messages I get when I try that solution:

    envSetVal("layout" "useDefaultVia" 'boolean nil)

    *WARNING* envSetVal: Can't set the value of variable 'useDefaultVia',

    in tool[.partition] 'layout' - it has not been registered.

    nil

    envSetVal("layout" "userVia" 'string "via1" )

    *WARNING* envSetVal: Can't set the value of variable 'userVia',

    in tool[.partition] 'layout' - it has not been registered.

    nil
