    Use axlDBGetConnect to get the connections to a pin or via.

    Use axlPathGetPathSegs to get the segments of each path returned from axlDBGetConnect

    Use axlPathSegGetEndPoint on each segment to get the points along the path.

    Take a look at the "Building Contexts in Allegro" in the Skill Language Reference Guide.

    i already explore building context in allegro but when savecontext key in it says skillDev not enabled.

    i dont have a license for skillDev, is there any possible way to encrypt in context without license?

    thank you.

    You don't need a license. You can do this in a Windows command shell

    List your steps so I can see what you are doing wrong. Maybe include a screenshot.
