Symbol

Configure data in Requirements Table blocks

Description

Symbol objects represent the data in Requirements Table blocks. Use Symbol objects to configure the input, output, parameter, local, and constant data in a Requirements Table block.

Creation

There are several ways to create a Symbol object:

  • Create new data in a Requirements Table block by using the addSymbol object function.

  • Create new data interactively in the Requirements Table block, then get the associated Symbol object by using the findSymbol object function.

Properties

expand all

Whether the data accepts complex values, specified as one of these values:

ComplexityDescription
"Inherited"The data inherits complexity based on the Scope property. Input and output data inherit complexity from the Simulink® signals connected to the associated input and output ports. Local and parameter data inherit complexity from the parameter to which the data is bound.
"Off"The data is a real number.
"On"

The data is a complex number.

Data Types: enumerated

Whether the data is a design model output, specified as a numeric or logical 1 (true) or 0 (false). This property applies only when the Scope property is Input. For more information, see Treat as design model output for analysis.

Data Types: logical

Name of the data, specified as a string scalar or character vector.

Data Types: char | string

Scope of the data that specifies where the data resides in memory relative to the block, specified as one of these values:

ScopeDescription
"Input"

The data is an input signal to a Requirements Table block.

"Output"

The data is an output signal of a Requirements Table block.

"Local"

The data is defined in the current block only.

"Constant"

The data is a read-only constant value that is visible to the block.

"Parameter"

The data resides in a variable of the same name in the MATLAB® workspace, the model workspace, or in the workspace of a masked subsystem that contains this block.

Data Types: enumerated

Size of the data, specified as a string scalar or character vector. This property must resolve to a scalar value or a MATLAB vector of values. The default value is "–1", which means that the size is inherited. For more information, see Inherit Size from Simulink (Simulink).

Data Types: char | string

Data type, specified as:

  • "Inherit: Same as Simulink"

  • "double"

  • "single"

  • "half"

  • "int64"

  • "int32"

  • "int16"

  • "int8"

  • "uint64"

  • "uint32"

  • "uint16"

  • "uint8"

  • "boolean"

  • "string"

  • "fixdt(1,16,0)"

  • "fixdt(1,16,2^0,0)"

  • "Enum: <class name>"

  • "Bus: <object name>"

To modify the data type properties, use the Symbols pane and Property Inspector. For more information, see Set Data Types in Requirements Table Blocks.

Examples

collapse all

Create a new model called myModel that contains a Requirements Table block.

table = slreq.modeling.create("myModel");

Add data named u1 to the block.

data = addSymbol(table,Name="u1");

From a model named myModel that contains a Requirements Table block, retrieve the RequirementsTable object.

table = slreq.modeling.find("myModel");

Retrieve the Symbol objects from the block.

data = findSymbols(table);

Change the properties of the first Symbol object in the array.

data(1).Name = "u1";
data(1).Scope = "Output";
