    Example of NSE script for editing symbols?


      Hi there,


      We have a third party symbol creation tool for large pin count parts called SymXpert.  It does a pretty good job creating symbols but there are a couple of things that it doesn't do.  When we were using ePD2005, I wrote a program that did the following:


      • User selects all symbols for a part
      • User clicks a button to create the HETERO attribute/property
      • User clicks another  button to "clean up" each symbol by:
        • open up each symbol in DxDesigner
        • Add the HETERO attribute
        • Change colors of lines, boxes and pin stubs
        • Save the symbol.
        • Open the next symbol.


      How do I do this using the New Symbol Editor in EE7.9.2?

            Hi Tony,

            NSE does't have the script capabilty likes .Viewdraw's Automation, only supports TCL script command.  Following command will make NSE to act as tcl script commands:NSE  -tcl yourtclcript.tcl -GUI.  A simple tcl scripts which openning a symol and adding attributes see below,


            open_symbol -file c://yourSimxpertsybmol.1 yourSimxpertsybmol.1
            setarrtib -index -owner yoursimxpertsymbol.1 hetero 3

            save_symbol -file c://yourSimxpertsybmol.1 yourSimxpertsybmol.1
            open_symbol -file c://yourSimxpertsybmol.1 yourSimxpertsybmol.2

            setarrtib -index -owner yoursimxpertsymbol.2 hetero 3

            save_symbol -file c://yourSimxpertsybmol.1 yourSimxpertsybmol.2
