Since R2021a



    setDataDefault(myCoderDictionaryObj,category,Name,Value) sets the default storage class and storage class property values in the code mappings for the specified category of model data.

    Use the coder.mapping.api.get function to access the CoderDictionary object associated with the data dictionary.

    cm = coder.mapping.api.get('codeDefinitions.sldd');

    To see the storage class of root-level inports for the dictionary, use the getDataDefault function.

    value = getDataDefault(cm, 'Inports', 'StorageClass')
    value =

    The dictionary uses the default storage class for inports.

    To configure the storage class, use the setDataDefault function.

    setDataDefault(cm, 'Inports', 'StorageClass', 'ExportedGlobal')

    To verify that the storage class of inports is now set to ExportedGlobal, use the getDataDefault function.

    value = getDataDefault(cm, 'Inports', 'StorageClass')
    value =
