Well, the only tools I have found so far output a complete parts list from an entire schematic/board project. (BOM-EX rules BTW!) Cool

However, I have 18 pages of schematics for the project I'm trying to finish up and I'd like to output a separate parts list for each page. That way I have a list of all power supply parts and a separate list of all parts in the BD section, the SD section, etc. So far, I've had to either 1) output a complete list of all parts and edit it to suit, or 2) delete all but the current page of the schematics and output a parts list for it. Neither of these is a particularly optimal solution.

Does anybody know of a User Language Program (ULP) or some way of using attributes or something to make it easier to output a list of all the parts for each section of my design?

Thanks!
Doug

OK, I solved it. I posted my script on the EAGLE forum, but figured I'd put it here too, since this is my favorite forum. Cool

EAGLE really has a weird/interesting/nice scripting system. This is a ULP file, which is written in a C-like language. ULPs can go through a library, a schematic, or a board and process almost anything. Interestingly though, you can't actually change anything with a ULP, so you generate a command script that is run when you use the exit() command...

Code:

#usage "<b>Adds PAGE number attribute to each part on each page of a schematic.</b>";

string Version = "0.10";
string tmp = "";
string Message = "";
string Script = "";

if (!schematic) {
  dlgMessageBox("Start this ULP from a Schematic...", "OK");
} else {
  schematic(SCH) {
    sprintf(tmp, "Schematic Name:\n%s\n", SCH.name);
    dlgMessageBox(tmp);

    SCH.sheets(S) {
      sprintf(Message, "Sheet %d\n---------\nParts:\n", S.number);
      S.parts(P) {
        sprintf(tmp, "%s\n", P.name);
        Message += tmp;
        sprintf(tmp, "ATTRIBUTE %s PAGE '%d';\n", P.name, S.number);
        Script += tmp;
      }
      dlgMessageBox(Message);  // Dialog box with list of parts on page
    }
  }
  //dlgMessageBox(Script);  // Debugging - show script before executing
  exit(Script);
}


Regards,
Doug

Hi Doug,

thanks for that script. Do you create ULPs on a regular basis?

Update: I found some useful ULPs here. I didn't know it was that easy to find help.
