Insert snapshot of the current system into report
This component inserts a snapshot (screen capture) of the current system into a report.
System Snapshot must be a child or descendant of a
System Loop component.
For HTML and
Direct PDF (from template) output, the blocks
and subsystems in the resulting image can link to associated report information. For
example, a block in the report can link to a block property table. A subsystem can link to
the subsystem block diagram or to the block properties.
For PDF reports in which you want to include hyperlinks in system snapshots, use
Direct PDF (from template) file format. If you use
Acrobat (PDF) format, snapshots do not include hyperlinks.
To enable this linking, select the Create link anchor for each object in loop check box on the appropriate loop component:
For blocks and masked subsystems in this system, select the check box on the
Block Loop component that reports on the system’s
To provide links to the sections that report on the unmasked subsystems of this
system, select the check box on the
Direct PDF (from template) output, you also
need to set the output format to
Automatic SL format or
Scalable Vector Graphics.
Format: Specifies the image file format. Select
Automatic SL Format (the default) to choose the format best
suited for the specified report output format automatically. Otherwise, choose an image
format that your output viewer can read.
Automatic SL Format — Select this option. or
Scalable Vector Graphics, with
PDF (from template) report output format if you are linking the
snapshot to related report content.
JPEG high quality image
JPEG low quality image
JPEG medium quality image
PNG 24–bit image
Scalable Vector Graphics
Largest dimension vertical: Positions the image so
that its largest dimension is vertical.
Use system orientation: Uses the paper orientation
setting for the system. Use the Simulink®
PaperOrientation parameter to specify the orientation.
Full page image (PDF only): In PDF reports, scales
images to fit the full page, minimizes page margins, and maximizes the size of the
image by using either a portrait or landscape orientation.
Scaling: Controls the size of the image in the image file.
Automatic (default): Automatically scales the image
to output dimensions.
Custom: Specifies image size.
Zoom: Enlarges or reduces the image size to the
percent that you specify. Use Max Size to specify the maximum
size other than the default for the image.
Selecting Use printframe paper settings deactivates the
and automatically scales the image to the print frame size.
Include callouts to describe visible objects: Displays descriptive callouts for visible objects
Use printframe: Prints a frame around the image. You can use
the default frame,
rptdefaultframe.fig, or use the Frame Editor to
build a custom frame. For more information, see the
function in Simulink documentation.
The default frame is five inches wide and four inches high. It includes the name of
the system and the model folder. This frame is optimized for use with a portrait paper
orientation. The Flight Control Model in the
Simulink model appears here with the default Simulink
Report Generator™ frame option.
To access the display options, click the Advanced button.
Scaling: Controls size of the image, as displayed in a browser. Making an image larger using this option does not affect the storage size of the image, but the quality of the displayed image may decrease as you increase or decrease the size of the displayed image.
Generally, to achieve the best and most predictable display results, use the default
Use image size.
Use image size: Causes the image to appear the same
size in the report as on screen (default).
Fixed size: Specifies the number and type of
Zoom: Specifies the percentage, maximum size, and
units of measure.
Size: Specifies the size of the snapshot in a browser, using
w h (width, height). This field is active only if you
Fixed size in the Scaling
Max size: Specifies the maximum size of the snapshot in a
browser, using the format
w h (width, height). This field is active
only if you choose
Zoom in the Scaling
Units: Specifies the units for the size of the snapshot in a
browser. This field is active only if you choose
in the Image size list box.
Alignment: Only reports in PDF or RTF format support this property.
System name: Uses the system name as the image
Full system name: Uses the system name, with path
information, as the image name.
Custom: Specifies a custom title.
Description (use system description)
Custom: Specifies a custom caption.
