I am looking for ZPL command which change NSQ parameter solve from pickup to fixed(off).

There is command SOLVETYPE and code PF_p to remove pickup for sequential but this option not available for NSQ parameter pick up. 

Any suggestion how to do so?

Hi Harel,

 

I’m curious to know if there’s a ZPL solution to this. Probably not the answer you were looking for, but this is definitely something you can do with the ZOS-API. In the ZOS-API the NSC editor cells have a MakeSolveFixed() method. You could use a Python snippet like so:

TheObject = TheSystem.NCE.GetObjectAt(1)

TheObject.GetCellAt(12).MakeSolveFixed()

The parameters are from cell 11 (Parameter 1) and forward. In my example, cell 12 is Parameter 2.

Take care,

Hi Harel and David,

There is actually a ZPL solution to this as well!


In Non-Sequential, removing and setting solves works a bit differently.  While the command SOLVETYPE can be used in Sequential, setting/removing variables in NSC is handled by the keyword SETVAR. 


When setting the code for this script, Nn controls non-sequential component position data.  n can be set from 1-6 to refer the code to x/y/z positions and x/y/z tilts.  The code On controls non-sequential component parameter data where n is equal to the parameter number that the user wishes to adjust.
 
If you don't need to use SETVAR on a specific configuration, the syntax will be as follows: SETVAR surf, code, status, object
 
Note that in Non-Sequential mode, surf will always equal 1.  In non-sequential, the code will either be Nn or On.  If status=0, the variable status will be removed from a parameter and if status equals any other value, the parameter will made variable.  The object will refer to the object that you wish to adjust.
 
For example, if Object 2 in a non-sequential system has a pickup solve on the X position, you can remove it with the following code:
