    How many methods to iterate all figures in a design? Reply

    Hi, I want to know how to iterate all figures (via, pin, line, arc, shape, path, polygon, etc) in a design, and what is the best method to do it.

    I guess that using axlDBGetDesign()->symbols could get all symbols and by symbol's dbid, I could get all symbols'  figures, but how could I get all the non-symbol figures? 

    Thanks,

     Jun

    Hi

    If you look into axlSetFindFilter and all the different select functions in axl that should get you what you want, its very strong to get the correct dbids directly so that you can iterate them. Even invisible ids can be selected using this method.

     

    Best regards

    First you have to indentify  Potential EMI Sources and Victims,Digital Signals,Power Switching Circuits,Identifying Coupling Mechanisms,Manufacturing Testing and Inspection.before figure a design.
