This documentation page references Altium NEXUS/NEXUS Client (part of the deployed NEXUS solution), which has been discontinued. All your PCB design, data management and collaboration needs can now be delivered by Altium Designer (with Altium Designer Enterprise Subscription) and a connected Altium 365 Workspace. Check out the FAQs page for more information.

Parent page: PCB Query Functions - Fields


Returns all from-to objects whose From Pad property complies with the Query.

While from-to objects will be returned in the PCB List panel, in order to see these in the workspace, you will need to apply the filter query after placing the PCB panel into From-To Editor mode.


FromToPad1 : PadName_String

PadName_String specifies the full Name that a pad has to match; this consists of an initial substring which specifies the Name property of the pad's parent component (i.e. the component's Designator), followed by a substring that specifies the pad's own Name property (i.e. the pad's Designator). The format will therefore be 'ParentComponentDesignator-PadDesignator'.

Example Usage

FromToPad1 = 'C14-2'
Returns all from-to objects whose From Pad property is C14-2.


  1. The single quote characters (') at the start and end of PadName_String are mandatory.
  2. The From Pad property is only defined for from-to objects.
