I use 'PutComponent' in a script to place a local cell on any sheet in my Drawing Editor (.mdf).

And I check before the place command, if the cell isn't already placed yet! and principle it works fine...

 

 

Dim Placedcell : Set Placedcell = pcbDoc.FindCell (CellToPlace)

If Not Placedcell Is Nothing Then
     MsgBox "'" & CellToPlace & "' is already placed!",, "Place " & CellToPlace
     Exit Sub
End If

 

 

Buuut... if the cell is already placed and you delete this cell now, than, even when you save the document after deleting: "The command FindCell thinks, it still is placed" !!! Only when you close the Drawing Editor and reopen it, FindCell checks the changes on the sheet.

 

hmm... maybe is there a way to refresh the list, which the command FindCell is using - so that the tool works in each situation?
