    Pin attributes from xDX Designer to xPCB Layout

    erick_reyes

      I'm working on a standalone program to generate text files based on custom component and pin properties, along with other PCB information. I'm using Visual C# with the COM interface.

       

      I can get all the information I need but pin properties do not seem to be propagating from xDX Designer to xPCB layout. I can't find a single Pin object with its "Properties" property populated (pin.Properties always returns 0 elements)

      If I access the schematic in xDX Designer, I can get the properties as Pin attributes (https://supportnet.mentor.com/docs/201303047/docs/htmldocs/mgchelp.htm#context=dxdesigner_auto&id=356&tag=113964).

       

      However, iterating through all components from the schematic is painfully slow (about twice as slow as retrieving properties from xPCB Layout).

       

      Does anybody have any insight on this?

       

      Thanks
