Delete specified objects.


delete_bd_objs [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <objects>...


Pass if successful in deleting objects.


Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<objects> The objects to be deleted




Delete specified objects from the current IP integrator subsystem design.

Objects must be passed directly to the delete_bd_objs command, and not simply referenced by the object name. Pins are passed to the command by get_bd_pins, for instance, rather than by pin name.

This command returns nothing if it is successful, and returns an error if it 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.

<objects> - A list of objects to delete from the current IP integrator subsystem design.


The following example deletes the various objects from the current subsystem design:

delete_bd_objs [get_bd_nets /Net] [get_bd_nets /vidout_1_vtg_ce] \
[get_bd_nets /newMod1/aclk_1] [get_bd_ports /addr] [get_bd_cells /vidOut_1]

The following example deletes the same objects, but uses multiple delete_bd_objs commands to clarify the objects that are being deleted by grouping them by type:

delete_bd_objs [get_bd_nets /Net] [get_bd_nets /vidout_1_vtg_ce] \
[get_bd_nets /newMod1/aclk_1]
delete_bd_objs [get_bd_ports /addr]
delete_bd_objs [get_bd_cells /vidOut_1]
