Add a new divider

Syntax

add_wave_divider [‑into <args>] [‑at_wave <args>] [‑after_wave <args>]
    [‑before_wave <args>] [‑color <arg>] [‑quiet] [‑verbose] [<name>]

Returns

The new divider.

Usage

Name Description
[-into] the wave configuration or group into which the new divider will be inserted.
[-at_wave] inserts the new divider into the specified wave object, or after the specified wave object if not a group
[-after_wave] inserts the new divider after the specified wave object
[-before_wave] inserts the new divider before the specified wave object
[-color] sets the displayed color of the new divider to the specified color, which can be a standard color name or a string of the form #RRGGBB Default: default
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
[<name>] the displayed name of the new divider to the specified string Default: new_divider

Waveform

Description

Creates a wave divider in the wave form viewer. The wave divider can be used to separate groups of related objects, for easier viewing.

The wave divider can be added into a specified or current waveform configuration (WCFG) at the specified location. If no location is specified the wave divider is inserted at the end of the waveform configuration.

This command returns the name of the newly-created wave divider.

Note: This command can only be used when running a simulation.

Arguments

-into <wcfgGroupVbusObj> - (Optional) Specifies the wave configuration, group, or virtual bus into which the new wave divider object(s) are inserted. If <wcfgGroupVbusObj> is a string instead of an object, it is treated as the name of a group in the current WCFG. If no such group is found, the tool searches the names of the virtual buses of the current WCFG. If still not found, the tool searches the names of all WCFG objects. If no -into object is specified, the current wave configuration is assumed.

-at_wave <waveObj> - (Optional) Adds a wave divider at a specified wave object. If <waveObj> is a string, it is treated as the display name of a wave object.

-after_wave <waveObj> - (Optional) Adds a wave divider after a specified wave object. If <waveObj> is a string, it is treated as the display name of a wave object.

-before_wave <waveObj> - (Optional) Adds a wave divider before a specified wave object. If <waveObj> is a string, it is treated as the display name of a wave object.

-color <arg> - (Optional) Sets the color property of the new wave object(s) to a pre-defined color name or a color specified by a six-digit RGB format (RRGGBB).

-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<name> - (Optional) Creates a divider with the specified display name. The default name is new_divider.

Examples

The following example inserts a wave divider named Div1, after the CLK wave object:

add_wave_divider -after_wave CLK Div1
