In page 28 of the Component Author Guide it says:

   

5. Enter the Component name, including version information.

   

Is that a doc mistake and should it just say "Enter the Component name" ?

        It is good practice to add version number (e.g. name_v0_0). But you can change the name later. Just right-click component name in the Project Explorer panel and Rename the component, including this "_v0_0".

Thank you, I was confused by the screen captures not showing version.    

   

Another silly question.    I am creating a firmware only component.   I have the symbol created with a catalog location, and the .c/.h API files.   It does not show in the catalog pane in the test project.   For it to show in the catalog, I had to add an schematic with a pin.   I do have the "show hidden" in options.

   

What is the trick to force it to place in catalog ?

        Check "\" symbols in the catalog placement root (symbol->properties->collection). Post project bundle for review (File->Create project bundle->Minimal).

I got past that one.    In all the trial attempts I created a new workspace with library and test project but forgot to add the lib dependency.  

   

Now looking for next hurdle 🙂

   

Thank you.

I have my first useful component working !!!    It provides the ability to put trace entries on a port for a logic analyzer.    I developed the actual code inline as part of a project I was debugging.    Then it occurred to me that it would be good to make a component out of it. 

   

Thank you Odissey
