Configure simulation debugging session to display information when entering and exiting methods
etrace configures method tracing for
certain methods according to the value you specify for
can configure a simulation debugging session to trace:
Model and system methods
Model, block, and system methods
The simulation debugging session displays information each time the simulation enters or exits a traced method. The information displayed includes the current simulation time, whether the simulation entered or exited the method, the method name, the method ID, and the name of the model, system, or block to which the method belongs.
When you start the simulation debugging session programmatically, the information is displayed in the MATLAB® Command Window.
When you start the simulation debugging session using the Simulink® Editor, the information is displayed in the Diagnostic Viewer.
You can use this function in a simulation debugging session started:
This function is available only for simulation debugging sessions started programmatically and for interactive simulation debugging sessions while paused within a time step.
lvl — Methods to trace
Methods to trace, specified as one of these options:
0— No methods
1— Model methods
2— Model and system methods
3— Model, system, and block methods
To start a simulation debugging session interactively, add one
or more breakpoints to your model, and in the Breakpoints List,
check that Pause within time step is selected. When the simulation pauses
on a breakpoint, some of the programmatic debugging commands, such as the
stop command, are available for use in the MATLAB Command Window.
