Knowledge Base

Forces the graphical viewports of the CAD or the schematic layout drawing to update. The viewports update automatically by default, so this command is only required after using the redrawoff command.

 

Supported Product: FDTD, MODE, DEVICE, INTERCONNECT

 

Syntax

Description

redraw;

Redraws graphics.

This function does not return any data.

 

Example

This example shows how to add objects more quickly by disabling the automatic redrawing. The following FOR loop will run much faster when the automatic redrawing is disabled.

redrawoff;    # disable automatic redrawing

for (i=1:1000) { # add 1000 objects

 addcircle;

 set("radius",100e-9); 

 set("x",i*1e-8);

 if (i==500) {

  redraw;   # force one redraw half way through loop

 }

}

redrawon;     # enable automatic redrawing
