How to get a FULL component list for a pin, including unplaced components

Hello all,

 

Sometimes I need to perform the calculations involving the components, that are still unplaced on the PCB. I found that I should first place the involving components on the PCB (at least as distributed).

For example, the following script will create a list of placed (and distributed) components only:

 

....................................

For Each netObj In doc.Nets

    For Each pinObj In netObj.Pins

        logfile.WriteLine(pinObj.Component.Name)

    Next

Next

....................................

 

Does anybody know a way to have a script to consider the components even they I not placed on the PCB yet?
