    leCreatePath net name question Reply

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there was an easy way to attach a name to a net when using the leCreatePath() function. Or does this have to be done separately outside of the function call?

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Given that there are no arguments to the function to do this - from cdsFinder:

    leCreatePath(
    d_cellViewId
    l_layerPurposePair
    l_points
    n_width
    [ t_pathStyle ]
    [ n_offset ]
    [ t_justification ]
     )
         => d_pathId | nil

    The answer is no - you have to add connectivity later. You could use rodCreatePath if you want to add connectivity at the same time as creating the path.

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    You can either use rodCreatePath  (non GUI approach) rather than leCreatePath and use the connectivity 
    arguments of it.
    Or you have to probably assign a pin to your path and use the following db commands: 
    netId = dbCreateNet( cvId name )
    termId = dbCreateTerm( netId name direction )
    pinId = dbCreatePin( netId figureId name )
    Where figure Id can be your path or an extra shape e.g. a rectangle on your path.
