Default report mode:

Summary

This violation occurs when two ports with the same name are detected on the same schematic sheet in the design.

Notification

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. Hovering over the object will display a pop-up hint that summarizes the violation. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:

Sheet contains duplicate ports Port <Identifier> at <Location1> and <Location2>

where:

  • Identifier is the name of the offending port.
  • Location1 is the X,Y coordinates for the first instance of the particular port.
  • Location2 is the X,Y coordinates for the second instance of the port.

Recommendation for Resolution

With the violation selected in the Messages panel, use the Details region of the panel to quickly cross-probe to the duplicate port objects. Determine which port object is in error and either rename it or delete it from the design.

Tip

  • Object hints will only appear provided the Enable Connectivity Insight option is enabled on the System - Design Insight page of the Preferences dialog. Use the controls associated with the Object Hints entry in the Connectivity Insight Options region of the page to determine the launch style for such hints (Mouse Hover and/or Alt+Double Click).
