    TclTk - Editing groups in Part Manager - Orcad 16.5 Reply
    Hello,

    I'm trying to figure out how to manipulate groups in Part Manager; specifically, to do the following:

    - Create a new group
    - Remove a group
    - Remove all groups (or iterate through all groups to remove each, one at a time)
    - Check to see if a group exists

    These don't to be covered in the example scripts or Tcl app note. From poking around with "info commands" I can see some of the above may be covered in the CISDeisgn and/or CVariant classes, but without any documentation or examples on these classes I have no idea how to use them.

    Thanks,
    Alan

    Try the capCIS.tcl in the tools\capture\tclscripts\capCustomSamples directory of the installation. It looks like the comments at the start of the file will help you out. 16.6 adds some more CIS related functions and documentation thereof but you should be able get what you need without 16.6 Refer to the orcad_scripting email alias for further assistance, if required.

    Ah! Just realized that I was looking at the 16.3 script examples (which are lacking the comments), not 16.5. Thanks!
