Get or set the current PR configuration.

In the Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX) design flow, the PR configuration lets you specify a reconfigurable module (RM) to assign to a specific instance of a Partition Definition (partitionDef). This flow lets you create unique configurations of the design based on the combination of the core design and one or more RMs. The DFX design flow requires the implementation of each PR configuration, resulting in partial bitstreams for the RMs, but complete bitstreams for each integrated configuration. Refer to the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Dynamic Function eXchange (UG909) for more information.

The current_pr_configuration either returns the PR configuration that is the current or active configfuration in the design, or lets you specify a PR configuration to make active.

This command returns the name of the current PR configuration, or returns an error if the command fails.


-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.

<config> - (Optional) Specify a PR configuration to make current. The configuration can be specified by name or returned as an object by get_pr_configurations. If the configuration is not specified, the current PR configuration is returned.


The following example sets the current PR configuration as specified:
