    Skill function(s) to select components in schematic Reply

    I'm trying to make a selection of one or more components in the schematic. Anyone can point me to any useful skill function for this purpose ? Thanks in advance. Michele

    Hi Michele,

    There are a few options, depending on the selection mechanism you're interested in and what you want to do with the selected objects.

    Are you looking for functions that ask the designer to make a selection (using mouse and/or keyboard) from the schematic? 

    The Virtuoso Schematic Editor SKILL Functions Reference lists some from a schematic-input, interactive perspective.  Browse  that page through the functions with "select" in their names.

    Or are you looking for functions that programmatically select cellview objects from within SKILL code, highlighting them in the schematic for the designer to interact with directly or indirectly?

    For some more generic selection functions, see the Cadence User Interface SKILL Functions Reference and the Cadence Design Framework II SKILL Functions Reference.

    Andrew.
