I am trying to write a function that places a specific symbol that does not have a part number into my schematic.
set Mypart1 = CompBlock.AddPartInstance("mypartition","","mysymbol.1",X,Y)
I have several issues:
1. I get a number of warnings "Warning 1276: component does not have "Part Number" attribute". How do I eliminate this message?
2. I have a .1 symbol and a slightly different .2 version. If I try to place the specific version, I get an error
"Error 1086: Invalid block name", but the specific symbol does get placed properly.
3. I further want to have the code attach the symbol to the cursor automatically so I can move it where I want it. Does one use CreateObject and MouseMoved to do this? If so, how?
One might say "Go into the CL View-Symbol View and do it from there".
That interface is very confusing and training is difficult.
DxDatabook is excellent in Search mode, but less than useful in CL View-Symbol View.
Another good solution would be to allow me to have my own category of special placeable symbols, as in the way the globals are handled.
