    Can't copy part and delete cell in LM



      I need to create new parts in LM using automation. My application looks for identical parts based on Cell and symbol and copy the part. This works fine.

      Now, I need to add the ability to find similar parts based on symbol only. Which means, that after I copy the identical part I need to delete his cell.

      I tried to use the following automation function "part.CellReferences.Remove(1)" but it doesn't do anything.

      According to the documentation, CellReferences has a read-only access , so I guesses that this is the reason it doesn't work.

      What can I do to resolve this issue?


      Thanks for your help,

          Hello Navit-san,


          I checked the Library automation.

          The Remove method which you are using is a command for erasing from a collection.

          Therefore, a CellReference object isn't deleted.


          The CellReference object doesn't have a method for deleting.

          Moreover, a Name property is read-only.
