Hi there,

1) is there any way to make a logical connection between a "pin" of sheetSymbol retrieved by ExecSheetGetSymbol and the pins of a e-component in the "betriebsmittel"-folder? A "symbol-pin" has an objectId like 00000000-0000-0000-0000-00001444E395, where the last two indices seems to change more or less randomly. But i don't see there any pattern i can use. So when i want to connect e.g. pin "a1" from an e-component to wherever - how can exactly determine which pin to use from the array of "symbol-pins"? Or do i have to make some kind of index-matching between the pins of the e-component and the pins of the sheetSymbol? Or does the stencil itself contains the missing link?

2) To get the graphical properties of a stencil ( boundingbox, pins with pinorientation, etx.) i actually use ExecSheetDropSymbol and then retrieve the properties by ExecSheetGetSymbol. Is there a way to examine these properties before i do the drop?

Thanks in advance!
