1. The component placement in the UDBs can be found in the report file.
In the workspace explorer, click on 'Results' tab and open the file 'project_name.rpt'. You can find these details in the 'Final Placement Summary' section.
2. Using the directive for component placement is explained in the 'PSoC Creator Help' document under the section - Directives Editor. Please refer this for usage.
OK. Thanks! I can't seem to get it to work though. I've attached a screen shot of the report file generated after a successful build without using any directives. The report file indicates the first component is "OverlayEngine:shift_reg_28\" and it's located at UDB=(0,0). As an experiment I added a directive that I thought would place the same component in the same location but I get errors. On the "Directives" tab I added:
Component name: \OverlayEngine:shift_reg_28\ Directive Type: ForceComponentUDB Directive Value: U(0,0)
I get this error: "Unable to parse placement_force attribute U(0,0) on signal "\OverlayEngine:shift_reg_28\" and apply to "UDB" component.
Can you please attach your complete project.
