IPCB_LayerObject

Overview
The IPCB_LayerObject interface represents a layer used in a PCB document. Each layer has properties such as layer name and used by primitive, for example.

This interface is returned by the LayerObject function in the IPCB_LayerStack interface, and is property in the IPCB_LayerStack_V7 interface.

     LyrObj := Stack.Next(LyrClass, LyrObj);
  Until LyrObj = Nil;

End;
V7_LayerID method

Syntax
Function  V7_LayerID : TV7_Layer; (IDispatch)
Description

LayerStack method

Syntax
Function  LayerStack : IPCB_LayerStackBase;
Description
This function returns the layer stack, referenced by the IPCB_LayerStackBase interface, associated with the current layer object. Note that both the IPCB_MasterLayerStack and IPCB_LayerStack interfaces inherit methods and properties from the IPCB_LayerStackBase interface.

IPCB_LayerObject properties

Name property

Syntax

Read/Write syntax
GetState_Name;
SetState_Name;

Description
The Name property returns a string representing the current layer object name. See line 27 in the V6_LayerID method example above.

IPCB_LayerObject_V7

Overview
The IPCB_LayerObject_V7 interface, like the IPCB_LayerObject interface, represents a layer used in a PCB document. Each layer has properties such as layer Name and whether it is used by primitives, for example. This interface is a property of the IPCB_LayerStack_V7 interface, and is returned by methods such as FirstLayer and NextLayer.

The IPCB_LayerObject_V7 interface offers the methods and properties of the older, now deprecated, version of the IPCB_LayerObject interface.

As an alternative interface to the current IPCB_LayerObject interface, the IPCB_LayerObject_V7 interface therefore offers backward compatibility for legacy scripts. In most cases just a few interface reference changes in the code should return an older script to a fully functional state.

The layer stack for a PCB document, when referenced by the IPCB_LayerStack_V7 interface, only deals with copper based layers such as signal and internal plane layers. Each layer in the layer stack can have dielectric information and layer pairs can be specified. However the LayerObject_V7 interface can provide access to any layer for the PCB board.

IPCB_LayerObject_V7 inherits methods and properties from the IPCB_LayerObject and IPCB_ElectricalLayer interfaces.

IPCB_MechanicalLayer

Overview
Altium Designer offers 32 general purpose mechanical layers for defining the board layout, placing dimensions on, including fabrication details on, or any other mechanical details the design requires.

Mechanical layers can be obtained by iterating though the layers on a PCB document, and once a layer is determined as mechanical, the layer can be wrapped as a IPCB_MechanicalLayer interface.

The LayerObject function from the IPCB_LayerStack interface (or the LayerObject property from the IPCB_LayerStack_V7 interface) can be used to fetch all layers using a loop.

The IPCB_MechanicalLayer interface inherits layers and properties from the IPCB_LayerObject interface.

IPCB_DielectricObject

Overview
The IPCB_DielectricObject interface represents the dielectric properties for the specified PCB layer.

IPCB_MechanicalLayerPairs

Overview
In Altium Designer there are 32 general purpose mechanical layers for defining the board layout, placing dimensions on, including fabrication details on, or any other mechanical details the design requires. The purpose of the IPCB_MechanicalLayerPairs Interface is to see and manipulate which Mechanical layers are paired to one another.

When a component incorporates objects on one or more Mechanical layers that have been paired, the Layer property of those objects changes when the Layer property of the component is toggled (between the Top and Bottom layers), just like objects on the non-Mechanical layers that have always been paired to one another, such as the Top and Bottom (copper) layers, the Top and Bottom Overlay layers, the Top and Bottom Paste Mask layers, and the Top and Bottom Solder Mask layers.

Notes
The IPCB_MechanicalLayerPairs interface is a MechanicalPairs property of the IPCB_Board interface — IPCB_Board.MechanicalPairs returns the IPCB_MechanicalLayerPairs interface.

Invoke the Count method to obtain the number of mechanical layer pairs for the existing PCB document. The LayerPair[I : Integer] property defines indexed layer pairs and returns a TMechanicalLayerPair record of two PCB layers.
