Generate MATLAB function report

Since R2021a



    report = getReport(config) returns the MATLABFunctionReport object for a MATLAB Function block. Use the MATLABFunctionReport object to access information about the functions and variables used by the MATLAB Function block.

    Access the MATLABFunctionConfiguration object for the MATLAB Function block in the model call_stats_block2 described in Implement MATLAB Functions in Simulink with MATLAB Function Blocks.

    config = get_param("call_stats_block2/MATLAB Function", ...

    Create the MATLABFunctionReport object for the MATLAB Function block.

    report = getReport(config);

    Access the coder.Function objects in the report.

    functions = report.Functions;

    Create a custom report that lists the functions and variables in the MATLAB Function block.

    for i = 1:numel(functions)
        fprintf("Function %s uses these variables:\n",functions(i).Name)
        variables = functions(i).Variables;
        for j = 1:numel(variables)
            fprintf("%d. %s -- %s\n",j,variables(j).Name,variables(j).Scope)
    Function stats uses these variables:
    1. mean -- Output
    2. stdev -- Output
    3. vals -- Input
    4. len -- Local
    Function avg uses these variables:
    1. mean -- Output
    2. array -- Input
    3. size -- Input

    MATLAB Function block property configuration, specified as a MATLABFunctionConfiguration object.


    The first time that you create a MATLABFunctionReport object or open the MATLAB function report, Simulink® automatically updates your model. If you make subsequent changes to the MATLAB code in the block, you must update your model before you generate a new MATLABFunctionReport object. Otherwise, the object does not reflect your changes. From the Modeling tab, select Update Model, or use the Ctrl+D keyboard shortcut. If you are in the MATLAB Function Block Editor, update the model by using the Ctrl+Shift+D keyboard shortcut instead.
