Summary

Returns all pad and via objects whose Library property complies with the Query.

Syntax

PadViaLibrary = PadViaLibrary_String

PadViaLibrary_String must be a string that:

  • Targets pads/vias from the required Pad Via Template Library. In this case, the string should target that library name (e.g. 'ExamplePVLib.PvLib').
  • Targets pads/vias from the local template library. In this case, the '<Local>' string must be used.

Example Usage

PadViaLibrary = '<Local>'
Returns all pad and via objects whose Library property is <Local>.

PadViaLibrary = 'ExamplePVLib.PvLib'
Returns all pad and via objects whose Library property is ExamplePVLib.PvLib.

PadViaLibrary Like '*PVLib'
Returns all pad and via objects whose Library property ends in PVLib. For example, pads/vias placed from the template library ExamplePVLib.PvLib would be returned using this expression.

Tips

  1. The Library property is only defined for pad and via objects.
  2. The single quote characters (') at the start and end of PadViaLibrary_String are mandatory.
