This example shows how to create a link.

Open the ShortestPath example.


Load the shortest_path_tests_reqs requirement set.

rs = slreq.load("shortest_path_tests_reqs");

Get a handle to the requirement with the index 2.1.3.

req = find(rs,Index="2.1.3");

Find the line range associated with line number four in the graph_unit_tests MATLAB® code file.

lr = slreq.getTextRange("graph_unit_tests.m",4);

Create a link between the requirement and the line of code in the MATLAB file.

myLink = slreq.createLink(req,lr);

Get a handle to the link set, then save it.

myLinkSet = linkSet(myLink);
tf = save(myLinkSet)
tf = logical
