Note: The Altium Designer SDK is currently in the Beta phase and therefore evolving along with its documentation. This reference section, derived from the Altium Designer RTL documentation, is a work in progress and includes some aspects that are different to the new SDK.

The PCB Application Programming Interface (API) reference details the object interfaces for PCB objects such as PCB documents and PCB design objects.

PCB API, PCB Object Model and Functions

The PCB Application Programming Interface consists of the PCB Object model and PCB API functions.

The PCB API is supported by the PCB Editor in Altium Designer. The PCB design object interfaces and methods are available to use in server projects in the languages supported by the Altium Designer SDK (currently Delphi). The PCB API is defined in the PCB Source Units which are added explicity in the Uses clause in a source unit within in a server project.
