bool
MODULE::BuildPolyCourtyard()

Used in DRC to build the courtyard area (a complex polygon) from
graphic items put on the courtyard.

true if OK, or no courtyard defined, false only if the polygon cannot
be built due to amalformed courtyard shape The polygon cannot be built
if segments/arcs on courtyard layers cannot be grouped in a polygon.

def pcbnew.MODULE.ClearAllNets (   self)
ClearAllNets(MODULE self)

void
MODULE::ClearAllNets()

Function ClearAllNets Clear (i.e.

force the ORPHANED dummy net info) the net info which depends on a
given board for all pads of the footprint. This is needed when a
footprint is copied between the fp editor and the board editor for
instance, because net info become fully broken 

Definition at line 35610 of file pcbnew.py.

def pcbnew.MODULE.Clone (   self)
Clone(MODULE self) -> EDA_ITEM

EDA_ITEM * MODULE::Clone()
const override

Function Clone creates a duplicate of this item with linked list
members set to NULL.

The default version will return NULL in release builds and likely
crash the program. In debug builds, a warning message indicating the
derived class has not implemented cloning. This really should be a
pure virtual function. Due to the fact that there are so many objects
derived from EDA_ITEM, the decision was made to return NULL until all
the objects derived from EDA_ITEM implement cloning. Once that
happens, this function should be made pure.

A clone of the item.

Used to copy some footprint parameters when replacing a footprint by
an other footprint when reading a netlist, or in exchange footprint
dialog

The netlist settings are all of the MODULE settings not define by a
MODULE in a netlist. These setting include placement prms (position,
orientation, side) and optionally local prms( clearances, zone
connection type, etc). The reference designator, value, path, and
physical geometry settings are not copied.

Parameters:
-----------

aModule:  is the MODULE to copy the settings to.

aCopyLocalSettings:  = false to copy only module placement true to
also copy local prms

aInitialComments block.

The comments are single line strings already containing the
s-expression comments with optional leading whitespace and then a '#'
character followed by optional single line text (text with no line
endings, not even one). This block of single line comments will be
output upfront of any generated s-expression text in the
PCBIO::Format() function.

Note that a block of single line comments constitutes a multiline
block of single line comments. That is, the block is made of
consecutive single line comments.

Parameters:
-----------

aInitialComments:  is a heap allocated wxArrayString or NULL, which
the caller gives up ownership of over to this MODULE.

testData:  Arbitrary data used by the inspector.

scanTypes:  Which KICAD_T types are of interest and the order is
significant too, terminated by EOT.

SEARCH_RESULT SEARCH_QUIT if the Iterator is to stop the scan, else
SCAN_CONTINUE, and determined by the inspector.
