Summary

Returns class, component, design rule, net, pad, and polygon pour objects whose Name property complies with the Query.

Syntax

Name : String

Example Usage

Name = '<All Components>'
Returns all class, component, design rule, net, pad, and polygon pour objects that have a Name property of <All Components>.

Name = 'U4-1'
Returns all class, component, design rule, net, pad, and polygon pour objects that have a Name property of U4-1.

Name Like 'R7*'
Returns all class, component, design rule, net, pad, and polygon pour objects that have a Name property whose associated string commences with R7.

Tips

  1. The Name property is only defined for class, component, design rule, net, pad, and polygon pour objects.
  2. In the case of pad objects, a full Name property has to be specified; this consists of an initial sub-string which specifies the Name property of the pad's parent component, followed by a '-' character, followed by another sub-string which specifies the Name property of the pad itself. Pads which are of a 'free' nature are identified by an initial sub-string of 'Free-', followed by the sub-string that specifies the pad's own Name property.
