The RptSelComps.vbs script will report on all selected components in Expedition. It includes the same information as reported in the component properties dialog but also includes a report of the unique padstacks the component is currently using (which may have been changed in layout) and all the objects of which at least one vertex of the component's Placement Outline appears in. It will write this report to "SelectedComponents.txt" file in the design's LogFiles directory, making it accessible by Expedition's Fileviewer. Since the padstack portion may take a considerable amount of time (dependant on number of pins), the script allows you to bypass the padstack report. The script may take awhile to run if padstacks are included and there are many components selected.


Update 1: Corrected Method of reporting Height and UndersideSpace values when cell has multiple POLs.
