IP Packager: Customizing the xgui.tcl

Jump to solution

Hi folks,

 

I'm using Vivado 2017.4 on Win10x64.

 

When using the IP Packager, a tcl file is generated and saved to the xgui folder of the created IP package. This file is used to create the IP customization window that pops-up when the IP is added to a design, or when it is reconfigured.

 

The question: Is there a way to customize that script? I feel like the packaged IP won't work if the file is modified. Is there anything preventing us from customizing this file?

 

Cheers,

 

Claude

There is no checksum or timestamp check or anything like that to prevent you from editing the file.

Therefore, as long as you make valid edits, you can edit the xgui.tcl file and have the changes recognized.

Xilinx does not provide documentation on xgui.tcl file editing so you would need to just look at other files as examples and it will be at your own risk.  Definitely keep a back up of the original.
