Attributes from the underlying symbol

Hi,

 

 

 

 

 

I have a script for DxDesigner that iterates all components and then gets some attributes from them.

 

 

I used Comp.FindAttribute(...) to get the attribute's value by name.

 

 

However, as the documentation says: "This only finds attributes attached to the component -- it doesn't find attributes that are only on the underlying symbol."

 

 

The documentation does not tell which property or method I should use when I also want attributes from the underlying symbol.

 

 

I tried GetBatchAttributes instead of FindAttribute. It didn't help.

 

 

Then I tried "Comp.SymbolBlock.FindAttribute". It didn't give errors but it didn't return right attribute values either.

 

 

So, how can I get the attributes from symbol level?
