Blocks that can control parameter values and display signal values during simulation

Use dashboard blocks to build an intuitive and interactive interface for your model. The control blocks, such as the Knob block, connect to variables or tunable parameters in your model and allow you to interactively modify the value of the connected element during simulation. The display blocks connect to signals in the model and display the signal value during simulation. For more information, see Control Simulations with Interactive Displays.

You can design dashboard blocks that look like controls and displays in your real system using the blocks in the Customizable Blocks library.
