Script Examples - AATK

Just a reminder that AATK has hundreds of scripting examples.  Most are vbs or forms but there are C#, JScript, TCL examples as well.  AATK is not just for Expedition, it has examples for CellEditor, Drawing Editor, Dx, Fablink, HyperLynx, HyperLynx DRC, Library Manger, PathFinder, Quiet Expert, CES....

 

It is inteded as a template for creating you own menus, icons...  It has a general AATK section for slicing and dicing a design or creating automated output files and a specialized FlipChp section for more advanced features like importing and exporting data, data manipulation, net shorting...

Currently we are updating AATK to make sure everything works with the new VX release. The only gotchas we have seen are scripts that deal with the display control since it is a new interface and scripts where we took advange of some Win32 functions that are not available on the 64bit build. I think we have crossed all those hurdles and if you want the VX build I could probably release a new build of AATK soon that will work from 2004.x through VX.x.

 

 

You can download the toolkit off of the OpenSource website SourceForge.  All the scripts have source code and should be used at your own peril.  SInce we give you the source code, if something doesn't work, you can fix it to work yourself and then send me your fix and I will update AATK.  Our standard discalimer is we, especially Me, My team of contributers and Mentor Graphics are not held liable for anything whacky happening to your database!  We are really just trying to help so don't blame us for a delay or crash, these scripts are meant to help you do your job faster and better.

 

You can donload AATK from here:
