Tcl Package and Version

Belongs to ::quartus::report

Syntax get_report_panel_id [-h | -help] [-long_help] <name>
Arguments -h | -help Short help
-long_help Long help with examples and possible return values
<name> Name of panel for which to get id

Gets the id of a panel with the specified name. The panel id is a non-negative integer for an existing panel. If the specified panel cannot be found, the id is -1. Using the panel id provides faster data access than using the panel name. You can use the "get_report_panel_id" command to check for the existence of a panel.(Refer to the example under the "get_report_panel_id" command.) Panel ids that you have cached may become outdated or invalid if the report is unloaded or reloaded. This error occurs after compilation or with calls to the "project_close", "unload_report", and "load_report" commands. Panel names support wildcards. 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".

Example Usage
load_package report
project_open chiptrip

# Set panel name
set panel {Fitter||Fitter Settings}
# Get the panel id
set id [get_report_panel_id $panel]

if {$id != -1} {
    # If panel exists, add a row to it
    add_row_to_table -id $id {{New Field} Yes No}
    # Save the changes to the report database
} else {
    # Otherwise print an error message
    puts "Error: Table $panel does not exist."
