Applied Parameters: Action=Compile|ObjectKind=Project
This command is used to validate all source documents of the active project.
With a source document for the project open as the active document, this command is accessed by choosing the Project » Validate Project command, from the main menus.
After launching the command, the Compiler will check for logical, electrical, and drafting errors between the Dynamic Data Model (DDM) and compiler settings in the active project. Any violations that are detected by the Compiler will be listed as warnings and/or errors in the Messages panel.
The design connectivity model is incrementally updated after each user operation through dynamic compilation - there is no manual compilation. The Validate Project command uses Altium NEXUS's Compiler to perform validation of the source schematic documents only.
- A project is currently active when one of its associated design documents is active in the main design window.
- The Compiler uses the options defined on the Error Reporting and Connection Matrix tabs of the Options for Project dialog (as applicable to the project type), when checking the source documents for violations.
- For a PCB design project, use the Navigator panel to peruse the connectivity model for the compiled source documents. The Projects panel can also be used to browse components and nets for the design.
