Add physical interface to Architectural Data section of Simulink data dictionary

Since R2023b



    interfaceObj = addPhysicalInterface(archDataObj,interfaceName) adds a physical interface specified by interfaceName to archDataObj, the Architectural Data section of the data dictionary and returns an interface object that represents the physical interface.

    To add a physical interface with a specified name to the Architectural Data section of a data dictionary, use the addPhysicalInterface function. For an example that shows more of the workflow for related functions, see Create Architectural Data Object and Use It to Configure Architectural Data.

    Add a physical interface to the data dictionary.

    physInterface1 = addPhysicalInterface(archDataObj,"PhysicalInterface")
    physInterface1 = 
      PhysicalInterface with properties:
               Name: 'PhysicalInterface'
        Description: ''
           Elements: [0×0 Simulink.dictionary.archdata.PhysicalElement]
              Owner: [1×1 Simulink.dictionary.ArchitecturalData]

    Add a data element to the physical interface and configure its properties.

    element = addElement(physInterface1,'PhysDE');
    element.Description = 'I am an element of a physical interface.'
    element = 
      PhysicalElement with properties:
               Name: 'PhysDE'
               Type: ''
        Description: 'I am an element of a physical interface.'
              Owner: [1×1 Simulink.dictionary.archdata.PhysicalInterface]

    Input Arguments
