Stateflow States Distribution

Metric ID



This metric determines the distribution of the number of Stateflow® states across the charts in a unit or component.

For information on how the number of Stateflow transitions is calculated, see Stateflow States.

Computation Details

This metric:

  • Does not analyze nested atomic subcharts or nested atomic boxes in subcharts.

  • Analyzes states, including atomic subcharts in states and Simulink®-based states.

  • Ignores commented states.


To collect data for this metric, use getMetrics with the metric identifier slcomp.StatesDistribution.


For this metric, instances of metric.Result return Value as a distribution structure that contains these fields:

  • BinCounts — The number of artifacts in each bin, returned as a vector.

  • BinEdges — Bin edges for the number of Stateflow states, returned as a vector. BinEdges(1) is the left edge of the first bin and BinEdges(end) is the right edge of the last bin. The length of BinEdges is one more than the length of BinCounts.

The bins in this metric result correspond to the bins in the States row and Distribution column in the Stateflow Architecture section.
