BlockAlignment - Simulink Block Alignment Tool
Helps to align the simulink model blocks using directed graph algorithms.
Syntax:
>> autoBlockAlignment(modelLayer,alignDepth,approach);
>> autoBlockAlignment(modelLayer,alignDepth,approach,annotationMoveLocation,annotationAlignDiretion);
  • modelLayer : Name of the simulink model/subsystem which blocks to be aligned
  • alignDepth : Depth to which simulink model layer to be aligned. 'current' - To align the blocks in the current layer only. 'all' - To align all layers below of the given system.
  • approach : Select a directed graph aligning approach. All three approaches are equally good. graphviz and mwdot are better than diagraph as we can consider port alignments as well. 'graphviz' - To use the graphviz software(https://www.graphviz.org/) installed in the machine. 'mwdot' - mwdot.exe is available as part of MATLAB installation. 'digraph' - digraph is a MATLAB function introduced from R2015b.
Optional Arguments: To handle annotation placements.
  • annotationMoveLocation : Location in which annotatios of the given simulink model to be moved. 'left','right','top','bottom' are the possible options. Default Value: 'top'.
  • annotationAlignDiretion : Direction in which annotatios of the given simulink model to be moved. 'column','row' are the possible options. Default Value: 'column'.
Sample:
>> autoBlockAlignment('sldemo_autotrans/Vehicle','current','graphviz')
>> autoBlockAlignment('sldemo_autotrans','all','digraph')
>> autoBlockAlignment('sldemo_autotrans/Vehicle','current','mwdot','left','row')
