Hi - does anyone here have experience with the
Our intention is to use it to add a property to a existing user layer in the cell in Cell Editor. Our expectation is to mimic the Cell Editor 'Draw-Property Text' feature to add a number of properties to a user draft layer
Function PutFabricationLayerTextOnLayer(sString As String, PositionX As Double, PositionY As Double, eTextType As EPcbTextType, eType As EPcbFabricationType, eSide As EPcbSide, [pLayerObject As LayerObject], [pComponent As Component], [eUnit As EPcbUnit = epcbUnitCurrent]) As FabricationLayerText
pLayer - parameter is only used for flex designs and soldermask text (which we are not using) . We have tried omitting, setting it to the appropriate layer object and also tried 'Nothing as the object.
pComponent - must be sepcified. As thgis is cell editor, we use 'Nothing' as the component object
In order to avoid trouble regarding enumerated types, we use the numbers instead. Both the propety 'Tolerance' and the NewPF User Draft layer do exist.
The key code :
For each objUserLayer in objActiveDoc.UserLayers
If objUserLayer.Name = "NewPF" Then
MsgBox objLayer.Name & " found, trying to add property"
'epcbTextPartProperty = 64
'epcbFabAssembly = 1
'epcbSideMount = 513
Set strLayerText = objActiveDoc.PutFabricationLayerTextOnLayer("Tolerance",0,0,64,1,513,Nothing,Nothing,0)
The last line fails with 'Invalid Parameters'
If we use
Set strLayerText = objActiveDoc.PutFabricationLayerTextOnLayer("Tolerance",0,0,64,1,513,objLayer,Nothing,0)
gives us 'Type Mismatch error
Any hints that help us move forward are highly appreciated.
