    malfunction axlSetVariable-axlShell in WindowXP Reply

    As you know, APD has "Route > Wirebond > Unlock" command.
    I would like to execute it using skill command.
    As I know, there is no same skill function.
    In this case, I execute axlShell("wirebond unlock").
    But it's necessary to click "Yes" button in Dialog window.
    ("Bond Wires and Bond Pads are created linked to the die symbol. Editing command...")
    I would like to process axlShell command without user interaction.
    For this, we can use
    axlSetVariable("noconfirm" "true")
    axlShell("wirebond unlock")
    axlUnsetVariable("noconfirm")
    It works well in SunOS(unix).
    But It doesn't work in WindowXP, need to click "Yes" button

    Hi,

    I don't have APD but I would normally overcome this problem by creating a script that includes the line:
    "fillin yes"

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers, Dave

    Thanks Dave,
    But I don't know how execute "fillin yes"

    In skill mode,
    Skill > fillin yes
    Error : undefined function - fillin
    Skill > axlShell("fillin yes")
    Error : Command not found: fillin yes

    Record a script that does what you want.
    Insert the "fillin yes" line at the end.
    eg:
    scriptFile = "tmp.scr"
    outPort = outfile(scriptFile)
    fprintf(outPort ".....\n")
    fprintf(outPort ".....\n")
    fprintf(outPort "fillin yes\n")
    close(outPort)
    axlShell(strcat("replay ", scriptFile))

    Thanks for quick reference Dave.

    For other users, I wrote full syntax "tmp.scr"

    #Allegro script
    version 15.51
    wirebond unlock
    fillin yes
