Detailed Description

Base class that schematic file and library loading and saving plugins should derive from.

Implementations can provide either LoadSchematicFile() or SaveSchematicFile() functions, or both. SCH_IOs throw exceptions, so it is best that you wrap your calls to these functions in a try catch block. Plugins throw exceptions because it is illegal for them to have any user interface calls in them whatsoever, i.e. no windowing or screen printing at all.

  try
  {
       SCH_IO_MGR::LoadSchematicFile(...);
  or
       SCH_IO_MGR::SaveSchematicFile(...);
  }
  catch( const IO_ERROR& ioe )
  {
       // grab text from ioe, show in error window.
  }

◆ CanReadLibrary()

bool IO_BASE::CanReadLibrary ( const wxString &  aFileName) const
virtualinherited

Checks if this IO object can read the specified library file/directory.

If not overriden, extension check is used.

Note
This is not a check that the file system object is readable by the user, but a check that this IO object can parse the given library.

◆ CreateLibrary()

void IO_BASE::CreateLibrary ( const wxString &  aLibraryPath,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtualinherited

Create a new empty library at aLibraryPath empty.

It is an error to attempt to create an existing library or to attempt to create on a "read only" location.

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing several elements.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the library create function anything special, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the IO is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (IO may not delete it), and IOs should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem finding the library, or creating it.

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR, and PCB_IO_KICAD_SEXPR.

◆ DeleteLibrary()

bool IO_BASE::DeleteLibrary ( const wxString &  aLibraryPath,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtualinherited

Delete an existing library and returns true, or if library does not exist returns false, or throws an exception if library exists but is read only or cannot be deleted for some other reason.

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory or file which will contain several elements.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the library delete implementation function anything special, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the plugin is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Returns
true if library deleted, false if library did not exist.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem deleting an existing library.

const wxString &  aSymbolName,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Delete the entire LIB_SYMBOL associated with aAliasName from the library aLibraryPath.

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing several symbols.
aSymbolNameis the name of a LIB_SYMBOL associated with it's root LIB_SYMBOL object to delete from the specified library.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the library delete function anything special, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the plugin is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem finding the alias or the library or deleting it.

const wxString &  aLibraryPath,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Populate a list of LIB_SYMBOL aliases contained within the library aLibraryPath.

Note
It is the responsibility of the caller to delete the returned object from the heap. Failure to do this will result in memory leaks.
Parameters
aSymbolListis an array to populate with the LIB_SYMBOL pointers associated with the library.
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing one or more LIB_SYMBOL objects.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the plugin anything needed about how to perform with respect to aLibraryPath. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif the library cannot be found, the part library cannot be loaded.

Parameters
aSymbolNameListis an array to populate with the LIB_SYMBOL names associated with the library.
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing one or more LIB_SYMBOL objects.

◆ GetAvailableSymbolFields()

virtual void SCH_IO::GetAvailableSymbolFields ( std::vector< wxString > &  aNames)
inlinevirtual

Retrieves a list of (custom) field names that are present on symbols in this library.

The plugin is responsible for guaranteeing that this list contains the set of unique custom field names present on any symbols contained in the library.

The required KiCad fields are not included in this list.

Parameters
aNameswill be filled with any custom fields present in this library.

◆ GetDefaultSymbolFields()

virtual void SCH_IO::GetDefaultSymbolFields ( std::vector< wxString > &  aNames)
inlinevirtual

Retrieves a list of (custom) field names that should be shown by default for this library in the symbol chooser.

This list should be a subset of the result returned by GetAvailableSymbolFields().

The preference for which fields to hide and show for a given library is stored on a per-library basis in a user's preferences (or in the project local settings for a project- local library). The set of fields returned by GetDefaultSymbolFields() will be used if this preference is missing.

Parameters
aNameswill be filled with the custom field names that should be shown by default

Definition at line 327 of file sch_io.h.

References GetAvailableSymbolFields().

◆ GetError()

const wxString & SCH_IO::GetError ( ) const
virtual

Return an error string to the caller.

This is useful for schematic loaders that can load partial schematics where throwing an exception would be problematic such as the KiCad legacy plugin.

Returns
an unformatted string containing errors if any.

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_HTTP_LIB, SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, and SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR.

◆ GetLibraryDesc()

◆ GetLibraryFileDesc()

virtual const IO_FILE_DESC IO_BASE::GetLibraryFileDesc ( ) const
inlinevirtualinherited

Get the descriptor for the individual library elements that this IO plugin operates on.

For libraries where all the elements are in a single container (e.g. all elements in a single file), then this will return the descriptor from IO_BASE::GetLibraryDesc().

Returns
File descriptor for the library elements

◆ GetLibraryOptions()

void SCH_IO::GetLibraryOptions ( STRING_UTF8_MAP aListToAppendTo) const
overridevirtual

Append supported SCH_IO options to aListToAppenTo along with internationalized descriptions.

Options are typically appended so that a derived SCH_IO can call its base class function by the same name first, thus inheriting options declared there. (Some base class options could pertain to all Symbol*() functions in all derived SCH_IOs.) Note that since aListToAppendTo is a PROPERTIES object, all options will be unique and last guy wins.

Parameters
aListToAppendToholds a tuple of
option
This eventually is what shows up into the fp-lib-table "options" field, possibly combined with others.
internationalized description
The internationalized description is displayed in DIALOG_PLUGIN_OPTIONS. It may be multi-line and be quite explanatory of the option.

In the future perhaps aListToAppendTo evolves to something capable of also holding a wxValidator for the cells in said dialog: http://forums.wxwidgets.org/viewtopic.php?t=23277&p=104180. This would require a 3 column list, and introducing wx GUI knowledge to SCH_IO, which has been avoided to date.

◆ GetModifyHash()

virtual int SCH_IO::GetModifyHash ( ) const
pure virtual

Return the modification hash from the library cache.

Note
This is temporary until the new s-expr file format is implement. The new file format will embed symbols instead of referencing them from the library. This function can be removed when the new file format is implemented.
Returns
the modification hash of the library cache.

Implemented in SCH_IO_ALTIUM, SCH_IO_CADSTAR_ARCHIVE, SCH_IO_DATABASE, SCH_IO_EAGLE, SCH_IO_EASYEDA, SCH_IO_EASYEDAPRO, SCH_IO_HTTP_LIB, SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR, and SCH_IO_LTSPICE.

◆ GetName()

inlineinherited

Return a brief hard coded name for this IO interface.

◆ GetSchematicFileDesc()

const IO_BASE::IO_FILE_DESC SCH_IO::GetSchematicFileDesc ( ) const
virtual

Returns schematic file description for the SCH_IO.

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_ALTIUM, SCH_IO_CADSTAR_ARCHIVE, SCH_IO_EAGLE, SCH_IO_EASYEDA, SCH_IO_EASYEDAPRO, SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR, and SCH_IO_LTSPICE.

◆ GetSubLibraryNames()

virtual void SCH_IO::GetSubLibraryNames ( std::vector< wxString > &  aNames)
inlinevirtual

Retrieves a list of sub-libraries in this library.

Some types of symbol library support sub-libraries, which are a single-level organizational hierarchy that is implementation-defined per plugin. Most of KiCad ignores sub-libraries and treats the hierarchy between library and symbol as flat, but the sub-libraries are used for sorting and grouping symbols in the symbol chooser.

Has no effect if SupportsSubLibraries() returns false.

Parameters
aNameswill be filled with a list of sub-libraries within this symbol library

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_DATABASE, and SCH_IO_HTTP_LIB.

Definition at line 302 of file sch_io.h.

◆ IsLibraryWritable()

bool IO_BASE::IsLibraryWritable ( const wxString &  aLibraryPath)
virtualinherited

Return true if the library at aLibraryPath is writable.

The system libraries are typically read only because of where they are installed..

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing several footprints.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif no library at aLibraryPath exists.

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_ALTIUM, SCH_IO_CADSTAR_ARCHIVE, SCH_IO_DATABASE, SCH_IO_EAGLE, SCH_IO_EASYEDA, SCH_IO_EASYEDAPRO, SCH_IO_HTTP_LIB, SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR, PCB_IO_ALTIUM_DESIGNER, PCB_IO_CADSTAR_ARCHIVE, PCB_IO_EAGLE, PCB_IO_EASYEDA, PCB_IO_EASYEDAPRO, PCB_IO_GEDA, PCB_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, and PCB_IO_KICAD_SEXPR.

◆ LoadSchematicFile()

SCH_SHEET * SCH_IO::LoadSchematicFile ( const wxString &  aFileName,
SCHEMATIC aSchematic,
SCH_SHEET aAppendToMe = nullptr,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Load information from some input file format that this SCH_IO implementation knows about, into either a new SCH_SHEET or an existing one.

This may be used to load an entire new SCH_SHEET, or to augment an existing one if aAppendToMe is not NULL.

Parameters
aFileNameis the name of the file to use as input and may be foreign in nature or native in nature.
aKiwayis the KIWAY object used to access the symbol libraries loaded by the project.
aAppendToMeis an existing SCH_SHEET to append to, but if NULL then this means "do not append, rather load anew".
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the loader how to load the file, because it can take any number of additional named arguments that the plugin is known to support. These are tuning parameters for the import or load. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Returns
the successfully loaded schematic, or the same one as aAppendToMe if aAppendToMe was not NULL, and the caller owns it.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem loading, and its contents should say what went wrong, using line number and character offsets of the input file if possible.

Reimplemented in SCH_IO_ALTIUM, SCH_IO_CADSTAR_ARCHIVE, SCH_IO_EAGLE, SCH_IO_EASYEDA, SCH_IO_EASYEDAPRO, SCH_IO_KICAD_LEGACY, SCH_IO_KICAD_SEXPR, and SCH_IO_LTSPICE.

◆ LoadSymbol()

LIB_SYMBOL * SCH_IO::LoadSymbol ( const wxString &  aLibraryPath,
const wxString &  aPartName,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Load a LIB_SYMBOL object having aPartName from the aLibraryPath containing a library format that this SCH_IO knows about.

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing several symbols.
aPartNameis the name of the LIB_SYMBOL to load.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the loader implementation to do something special, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the plugin is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Returns
the part created on the heap if found caller shares it or NULL if not found.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif the library cannot be found or read. No exception is thrown in the case where aAliasName cannot be found.

◆ SaveSchematicFile()

void SCH_IO::SaveSchematicFile ( const wxString &  aFileName,
SCH_SHEET aSheet,
SCHEMATIC aSchematic,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Write aSchematic to a storage file in a format that this SCH_IO implementation knows about, or it can be used to write a portion of aSchematic to a special kind of export file.

Parameters
aFileNameis the name of a file to save to on disk.
aSheetis the class SCH_SHEET in memory document tree from which to extract information when writing to aFileName. The caller continues to own the SCHEMATIC, and the plugin should refrain from modifying the SCHEMATIC if possible.
aSchematicis the SCHEMATIC object used to access any schematic-wide or project information needed to save the document.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the saver how to save the file, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the plugin is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL. Set the #PropSaveCurrentSheetOnly property to only save the current sheet. Otherwise, all hierarchical sheets are saved.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem saving or exporting.

◆ SaveSymbol()

void SCH_IO::SaveSymbol ( const wxString &  aLibraryPath,
const LIB_SYMBOL aSymbol,
const STRING_UTF8_MAP aProperties = nullptr 
)
virtual

Write aSymbol to an existing library located at aLibraryPath.

If a LIB_SYMBOL by the same name already exists or there are any conflicting alias names, the new LIB_SYMBOL will silently overwrite any existing aliases and/or part because libraries cannot have duplicate alias names. It is the responsibility of the caller to check the library for conflicts before saving.

Parameters
aLibraryPathis a locator for the "library", usually a directory, file, or URL containing several symbols.
aSymbolis what to store in the library. The library is refreshed and the caller must update any LIB_SYMBOL pointers that may have changed.
aPropertiesis an associative array that can be used to tell the saver how to save the symbol, because it can take any number of additional named tuning arguments that the plugin is known to support. The caller continues to own this object (plugin may not delete it), and plugins should expect it to be optionally NULL.
Exceptions
IO_ERRORif there is a problem saving.
