Objects have properties that can be queried. Property names are unique for any given object type. To query a specific property for an object, the following command is provided:
get_property <property_name> <object>
For example, the lib_cell property on cell objects tells you what UniSim component a given instance is mapped to:
get_property lib_cell [get_cell inst_1]
To discover all of the available properties for a given object type, use the report_property command:
report_property [get_cells inst_1]

Some properties are read-only and some are user-settable. Properties that map to attributes that can be annotated in UCF or in HDL are generally user-settable through Tcl with the set_property command:
set_property loc OLOGIC_X1Y27 [get_cell inst_1]
