Summary

Returns embedded board objects whose Column Spacing property complies with the Query.

Syntax

EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing : Number

Number will follow the measurement units currently employed for the document – either Imperial (mil; 1mil = 0.001inch) or Metric (mm; 1mm = 0.001meter).

A specific option for the measurement unit can be specified – overriding the default units specified at the document level – through use of an additional measurement unit-based keyword:

  • AsMils(EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing) : Number – to specify a spacing in mil.
  • AsMM(EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing) : Number – to specify a spacing in mm.

Example Usage

EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing = 1500
Returns all embedded board objects that have a Column Spacing property which is 1500 current measurement units.

EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing >= 1000
Returns all embedded board objects that have a Column Spacing property which is greater than or equal to 1000 current measurement units.

AsMils(EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing) Between 1000 And 1500
Returns all embedded board objects that have a Column Spacing property which is greater than or equal to 1000mil and less than or equal to 1500mil.

AsMM(EmbeddedBoard_ColumnSpacing) < 38.1
Returns all embedded board objects that have a Column Spacing property which is less than 38.1mm.

Tips

  1. The Column Spacing property is only defined for embedded board objects.
