26.6 Factory Overrides View

The Factory Overrides View shows the UVM create calls affected by factory overrides.

Open the Command Palette and run the View: Focus on Factory Overrides View command. The view is visible only after setting a runtime elaborated Verification top.

The view content is grouped in three categories:

  • Direct: Lists all the overrides applied by the UVM factory while creating components or objects during the UVM elaboration. Each entry corresponds to the application of a particular override.

  • Chain: Groups together all the chained factory overrides that get applied during the creation of a UVM component or object which is subject to multiple overrides.

  • Unused: Lists all the factory overrides which were not applied during the UVM elaboration.

Note: Overrides meant to be applied after the end of elaboration phase will show up as Unused.

The view columns represent:

  • Applicable To: The verification hierarchy to which the override is applicable.

  • Original Type: The type to be overridden.

  • Override Type: The type created by the factory.

  • Override Path: The verification hierarchy path of the created object.

  • Override Chain: The types that make up the override chain, for example if foo overrides bar, and xyz overrides foo, then the chain will show foo > bar > xyz.

The quick search bar applies to any of the view’s columns.

Using the Filters button (), you can toggle the visibility of each section.

Tip: Double click any node to go to the create call.

Tip: Use Up and Down arrow keys to navigate the view, Left to collapse and Right to expand.
