Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::report

Syntax create_report_panel [-h | -help] [-long_help] [-folder] [-table] <panel_name>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
-folder Option to create folder
-table Option to create table
<panel_name> Name of the panel to create

Creates a new report panel with the specified name. If -table option is specified, a table is created. If -folder option is specified, a folder is created. The name must be the full path to the new report panel, such as "Fitter||My Table". If the specified panel is created successfully, the corresponding panel id is returned. The table of contents portion of the Compilation Report window shows short panel names for better readability. However, the panel name used by this command is the full panel name as shown in the right-hand side frame of the Compilation Report window or the .rpt file of the corresponding command-line executable. For example, the table of contents shows the path "Analysis and Synthesis||Summary". However, the corresponding full path used by this Tcl command is "Analysis and Synthesis||Analysis and Synthesis Summary".
