    DxDesigner: How to get the full Symbol Name e.g. Resi.1 via Automation and the "Forward To PCB" Attribute

    thomas.tb.becker

      Hi,

       

      is there a possibility to get the full symbol name with the version via automation ?

      CompObj.SymbolBlock.GetName(LONG_NAME) returns only the name without the version.. Also there is no attribute where this name is stored. ( CompObj.GetBatchAttributes() shows all attributes of the component)

      The background:

      I want to know the orientation of the symbol after placement in the DxDesinger via the DxDatabook. We have e.g. a Resi.1 which is oriented horizontal and a Resi.2 which is rotated 90° but by the drawing, not by rotation command.

      Thanks in advance.

       

      Regards,

      Thomas
