Device sheet not connecting at all [Solved]
« on: June 30, 2017, 07:10:46 PM »
Hello everyone,

I'm facing a quite strange behaviour in one of my project (tested on AD10 and AD16):
I have several sheet (not device sheet), connected togetheir on a top level sheet. In some of those subsheet i have put some device sheet (reused design). my issue is that after compiling, none of these device sheet signals or harness connect through the Ports. I use "insigh" to check if there is a connexion.
i've tried replacing one of the device sheet by a regular sheet, same "no-connexion" issue.

Have you any idea on why it isn't connecting the net as expected? that would be a great help. thanks,

little follow up, i have found the culprit: The initial project is based on a open source design which feature buses interconnecting sheets through ports. Or at least it is what i though but after some digging it appears that theses buses do not interconnect, they're purely here for aesthetic reasons. instead the connections are made through Global level net (you know, in the project parameters).
And that's why my device sheet couldn't work, i was not in a hierarchical projet. it was very tricky and obvious at the same time  :palm:

i had to reddo all the hierarchical stuff via harnesses but now everything is connected. Problem solved
