    DesignCapture VX1.2 with Automation Layer?

    michael.weber

      Hi All,

       

      We will switch soon from 7.9.4 to VX1.2 and so I'm wondering, if DC (DesignCapture) VX 1.2 did have an automation layer?

      I did not found any COM Reference jet.

      Is there a automation available ?

          Hi Michi,

           

          Design Capture has always had it's own Procedural Interface (DC-PI).

          Why is automation for DC of interest now that you are switching from 7.9.4 to VX.1.2 ?

           

          Regards

          Jackie

            Hi Jacki,

             

            our engineers have some "interesting" ideas.... one of them is to rename everey XSIG net to the name of attached Testpoint. At the Moment I read out this information from pcb. But for this it must be synchronized.

            2nd is, we have a component attribute "Status" whis is corresponding with SAP-Parts Status. This one can be empty. With normal reload Parts from Lib, DC deletes not Properties, that did not exist anymore.

            For Instance. Part have Status "do not order", changes to "free", this old Status Value will not delete from Part.

            Adding a "new" Status works.
