    Symbol Etch ? Reply

     Hi all ?

    Hi Luan,

     You can access certain items using axlSetFindFilter and related functions.

    If the shape is connected to pin and on a net then try using axlDBGetConnect function.

     Hi Pawandeep !

      Thank for your reply but the symbol I have checked  is MECHANICAL SYMBOL, and it's "ETCH SHAPE"  is not connect to any pin. the shape's net is dummy net. If I get all shape and then I use foreach command to check each shape one by one  througt attribute shape->symbolEtch, I can do that, but It seem complex method, So I want to find it (Symbol Etch Shape) via symbols that I got in another code skill.

    Tks 

    Luan.
