artparameterintooldisplay

Hi there,

I have the NCSU Library installed. I want to add the parameters \'area\' and \'perimeter\' to the drop down list, as the technology that i am using expects these parameters. I opened to NCSU_Analog_Parts library and edited the code in artSimInfoCDF.att by adding 2 new fields for area and perimter. But when i launch into cadence, although i can see the instance, the drop down list still does not contain area and perimeter. When i generate the netlist, area and perimeter are not there. I checked the artSimInfoCDF.att again and the area and perimeter fields are included (please see below

cdfCreateParam( cdfId
?name \"area\"
?prompt \"Area\"
?defValue \"\"
?type \"string\"
?display \"artParameterInToolDisplay(\'area)\"
?parseAsNumber \"yes\"
?parseAsCEL \"yes\"
)

Do i need to recompuikle something to get this to work?? Your help will be much appreciated, please reply as soon as you can. All i need is to be able to add design paremeter to the virtuouso model.

Thank you for your help!
Dean.

You can either
* Change \"artParameterInToolDisplay(\'area)\" to t
or
* In the schematic window, choose menu "Options / Tool Filter..." and check all tools you want to use.
