Pcbnew: Python get symbol properties fields


#1

Hi all,

Is possible, with python in pcbnew, get the symbol properties fields (like datasheet for example) ? Or only is possible get the value, reference and footprint?

Thank you,

Pcbnew operates with footprints, not symbols. Footprints don’t have those additional fields you can assign to a symbol in eeschema.

So short answer is no.

Longer answer is you can put something together that will read netlist/xml/schematic and pull extra fields from those files and join footprint list and symbol list by references.
