I don't see anything in the API. Looking through the 'examples' folder, 'schematic-parameter.layout' shows that you can use
getParameter("cellname") and getParameter("devicename"), but only getParameter("devicename") seems to work. getParameter("cellname") always returns an empty string.
In the documentation, at https://www.layouteditor.org/layoutscript/api/selement#5
> string sElement::getParameterList()
is descripted as returning a string, but it actually returns a stringList.
getParameterList() does not seem to include "devicename". Are there any parameter names besides "devicename" that can be used with getParameter?

Thanks for pointing to these issues. The example macro and the macro interface was a bit outdated. A parameter *cellname* is no longer in use. The line in the *schematic-parameter.layout* file should now be:
The function *getComponent* will be available with the development releases 20211005 available for download [here](https://layouteditor.com/download?release=latest) later today.
The manual on the function *getParameterList* was corrected.
