Parent page: Library Query Functions - Footprints


Returns all footprints whose Height property complies with the Query.


Height : Number

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

Example Usage

Height = 300
Returns all footprints that have a Height property which is equal to 300 current measurement units.

Height >= 5.08
Returns all footprints that have a Height property which is greater than or equal to 5.08 current measurement units.

Height <> 550
Returns all footprints that have a Height property which is not equal to 550 current measurement units.


  1. Ensure that the scope of the search is set to Components, using the Search in field in the File Libraries Search dialog.

  3. All results are listed in the Query Results listing, back in the Components panel.
