Function block works in 2017b but not in 2019b

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello,
I have created a Simulink model that allow the user to simulate some Constant (True = not OK / False = OK), and spread the information to upper block.
To do that i have a function block (Function Matlab) that change the color of the upper block (Function A block) according to the information he receive :
function y = fcn(u)
coder.extrinsic('set_param','get_param','gcs');
parent = get_param(gcs,'parent');
y = u;
if u == 3
set_param(parent,'BackgroundColor','red');
elseif u == 2
set_param(parent,'BackgroundColor','orange');
elseif u == 1
set_param(parent,'BackgroundColor','gray');
else
set_param(parent,'BackgroundColor','green');
end
So if he receive 3 the Block "Function A" goes red, 2 => Orange, 1=> Gray and if all is good => Green.
In my 2017b Matlab all is working well, but when i test my model in 2019b Matlab the uppers Block colors don't change as if the Function Block don't work in 2019b.
Do you know what changed between versions ?
Thanks for helping in advance.
PS : I attached the example model : Simulate.slx

Put a breakpoint in the code above and debug, the problem is clear.
The "parent" of your "gcs" is the root level model, which can't be assigned a background color.
Avoid using "gcs". Specify full path.
