Model Configuration Parameters: Model Referencing

The Model Referencing pane of the Configuration Parameters dialog box allows you to specify options for:

  • Including other models in this model

  • Including the current model in other models

The option descriptions use the term this model to refer to the model that you are configuring and the term referenced model to designate models referenced by this model.

To open the Configuration Parameters dialog box for the top model in a model hierarchy, in the Simulink® Toolstrip, on the Modeling tab, click Model Settings.

To open the Configuration Parameters dialog box for the current referenced model, on the Modeling tab, click the Model Settings button arrow. Then, in the Referenced Model section, select Model Settings.
