Get Schematic Components in Variant Manger Mode

Question asked by fuba on Apr 11, 2013

Hello Community,


I like to query a Schematic handled in the DxDesigner, for "active" components.

With active components, I mean the Parts which are not crossed out (see my attachment).


The Red Cross in the attached file, is made by the Variant Manager.


I know that I can pull a complete BOM, with the on Board Tools from DxDesigner, but

what I want, is a BOM of the Crossed Out parts.


I have a tool/script running which gets all components listed on a sheet, a selection, or ...

but I am not able to judge with code, if it is a red crossed part or not.


In/With the Variants manager I have the option, to delete those red crossed components.

Then my tool/script will work, but that's not what I want.


So, If you have any help for me regarding scripting around the variant manager, or how to

get the "Crossed Out" parts, I am very happy.


Thanks in advance.
