    probing / selecting multiple nets through hierarchy Reply

    I am trying to create a skill script which allows the user to probe a nets through the hierarchy of a schematic.  I would like it to be almost exactly similar to the ADE function: Outputs / To Be Saved  / Select on Schematic (and return a list of the probe).  However I can't figure out how to do this.

    asiSelectNet() does almost exactly what I want, but it only allows me to select one net, not multiple.  I have tried using its callback from the field it updates to retrigger itself, but this causes problems (blocking?).

    geProbeAddNet() has two problems.  I can't descend and maintain the enterfunction (descending destroys the probing... descending apparently isn't nestable).  The other problem is that I can't do this in a multiple net select fashion.

    I have even tried using the ADE's function: sevChangeOutsOnSchematic('sevSession1 'save), clearing the ADE outputs before running this function, and trying to grab the outputs after.  However, it is non-blocking and there are to my knowledge no public triggers to run off of.

    I suspect the answer lies in the Cadence private functions: astiStartSelect and astiCancelSelect, but I can't get the astiStartSelect arguments right to make it work.

    Suggestions, anyone?
