Summary

Returns all design rule and violation objects whose Scope 2 property complies with the Query.

Syntax

RuleScope2 : String

The entered string must target the scope defined for the rule (e.g. 'All').

Example Usage

RuleScope2 = 'All'
Returns all design rule and violation objects whose Scope 2 property is All.

RuleScope2 = '-'
Returns all design rule and violation objects that have no Scope 2 property. A few types of design rules have a Scope 1 and Scope 2 property (binary rules), but most types of have just a Scope 1 property (unary rules), and thus a Scope 2 property cannot be defined for such rules.

RuleScope2 = 'InNet(''D7'')'
Returns all design rule and violation objects whose Scope 2 property is InNet('D7').

RuleScope2 Like 'InNet(''???'')'
Returns all design rule and violation objects whose Scope 2 property is InNet('???').  The string of the associated net needs to consist of exactly three characters, with examples of compliant Scope 1 properties being InNet('GND') and InNet('VCC').

RuleScope2 Like 'InComponent(''??*'')'
Returns all design rule and violation objects whose Scope 2 property is InComponent('??*'). The string of the associated component needs to consist of at least two characters, with examples of compliant Scope 2 properties being InComponent('C3') and InComponent('RP1').

In the second, third, and fourth examples, the name of the net (D7 and ???) is surrounded by single quote characters within the Query specifying the Scope 1 property. When such a Query is used within another Query, it needs to be enclosed in another set of single quote characters, and hence the double single quotes.

Tips

  1. The Scope 2 property is only defined for design rule and violation objects.
