    Error on creating wire in Virtuoso Reply

     Hi,

    When i'm trying to create a wire in Schematic editor of cadence Virtuoso i'm getting the following error and wire is not getting created.
    I'm able to copy/move/extent the already existing wires though..

    "Loading layers.cxt
    * Field is "color" *
    *Error* hiCreateCyclicField: value must be contained within the list of choices"

    It was working fine till yesterday.

    If anyone know the solution/fix for this problem, please let me know..

    reagrds,

    Shameel

     Shameel,

    Two things - which version are you using (what does getVersion(t) return), and can you try doing:

    tracev(_schgColorIcons color)

    and then do the Create Wire (please do this in a new virtuoso session before you've ever created a wire).

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Can't really see how you'd get this error when creating a layout view, but the main issue is that you've given no context here. I suggest you post the CDS.log showing the problem as this would show the version you're using, the sequence of commands and the error message. If you can post it as an attachment (via the options tab when replying), that would be great. 

    Regards,

    Andrew
