Parent category: Violations Associated with Nets

Default report mode:


This violation occurs when a parameter set object is attached to a net object (wire or bus) and at least one of the defined parameters in the set has no name assigned to it.


If compiler errors and warnings are enabled for display on the schematic (enabled on the Schematic - Compiler page of the Preferences dialog) an offending object will display a colored squiggle beneath it. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:

Invalid net-parameter name at <Location>


  • Location is the X,Y coordinates for the hotspot of the parameter set object associated to the net.

Recommendation for Resolution

Access the Parameters dialog for the offending parameter set object and ensure that all parameters defined within have a name assigned to them. If the offending constituent parameter is not required, simply remove it from the set.
