Get the marked objects in the current design open in the Vivado™ IDE. Objects can be marked with the mark_objects command.

You can get all marked objects in the design, or specify marked objects by color, or by RGB value.

Note: This Tcl command works only when Vivado is run in GUI mode.


-rgb <args> - (Optional) The color to use in the form of an RGB code specified as {R G B}. For instance, {255 255 0} specifies the color yellow, while {0 255 0} specifies green.

-color <arg> - (Optional) The color used for marking the specified object or objects. Supported colors are: red, green, blue, magenta, yellow, cyan, and orange.

-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.
