    How can I get the nets which had been highlighted? Reply

    Hello everyone,
    I'm using Allegro 14.2, and I want to get a report which includes the names of the nets which had been highlighted. How can I implement that through SKILL?
    Thanks.

    In 14.2 you can query if an dbid is highlighted via a private Skill function:
    _axlGetObjectHighlight(o_dbid)

    it returns a l_highlightInfo which is constructed as
    follows:

    A list of highlight data which describess the
    highlight state of the dbid. Lists with the
    currently displayed highlighting first.
    Each list entry is a list which has a
    description string and a highlight color.

    The following return would be for a dbid
    that has the temporary highlight (color 2) and
    the permanent highlight (color 15) for PINS.
    ((""TEMP_HLT"" 2) (""PERM_HLT_PIN"" 15))


    It is a private Skill function which means it may
    disappear or change in a future release. In 15.5 it
    is replaced by a public skill function, axlIsHighlighted
    which has a simple return value.

    In 14.2 there is a private Skill function,
    _axlGetObjectHighlight which takes a dbid and returns
    l_highlightInfo. The return is a list of highlight data
    which describess the highlight state of the dbid.
    Lists with thecurrently displayed highlighting first.
    Each list entry is a list which has a
    description string and a highlight color.
    The following return would be for a dbid
    has the temporary highlight (color 2) and
    the permanent highlight (color 15) for PINS.
    ((""TEMP_HLT"" 2) (""PERM_HLT_PIN"" 15))

    It is a private function since it may be modified or
    deleted in a future release.

    In 15.5, it is replaced by axlIsHighlighted which
    returns a simple value.
