Component Library Improvements

To make it easier to find components, you can add properties to selected components and use those properties to add columns to the CircuitWorks Component Library dialog box. Each added column includes a filter that you can use to limit the components that appear in the dialog box.

To add a custom property:

  1. In the CircuitWorks Component Library dialog box, in the left pane, select a component.
  2. Click Add Property .
  3. In the New Custom Property dialog box, type a Property name and Property value.
  4. Select optional settings:
    • Apply to all components. Applies the property value to all components that are visible in the library.
    • Add new column in table. Creates a column in the left pane that is labeled with the property name and property value.

To add a column:

  1. In the CircuitWorks Component Library dialog box, click Add Column .
  2. In the Mapping Column to Property dialog box, in Available properties, select a property.

    The list includes custom properties you have added to components and original properties.

    The new column labeled with the property name appears in the left pane.

  3. To hide or rename an added column, right-click the column header and click Hide Column or Change Column Name.

To filter on a column property:

  1. In the column heading, click Apply Filter .

    A field with a list control appears above the column. A red appears next to the control.

  2. In the list, select a property.

    The component list is redisplayed, showing only components that have the selected property.

    The property you selected remains in a field above the column heading.
