InLayerStackRegion(RegionName1 : String,RegionName2 : String,...,RegionNamen : String) : Boolean/Boolean_String

InLayerStackRegion('Region1')
InLayerStackRegion('Region1') = True
InLayerStackRegion('Region1') = 'True'

InLayerStackRegion('Region1','Region2')

InLayerStackRegion('Region1','Region2') = 'True'

Tips

  1. The single quote characters (') at the start and end of the RegionName string are mandatory.
  2. The reference point for each object kind varies, but is normally the X/Y location shown in the Properties panel. For example, for a pad or via it is the center; for a track it is the left vertex; for a string it is the bottom left corner. A component will be returned if its reference point is within the Board Region, if the reference point is not within the Board Region the query is applied to the individual primitive objects within the component.
