Hello,
I am trying to set up a custom comparison filter in order to ignore any changes to blocks of type 'simulink/Model-Wide Utilities/Model info'.
I have managed to do so by filtering out any block with "Name" equal to "Movel Info" but this is obviously not ideal.
I have tryed to filter based on "MaskType" being equal to "CMBlock" but id does not work and I haven't found any way to debug these filters.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Riccardo

You can get the diff of the model by using the visdiff function.
At that time, you can exclude Model Info from the difference result by filtering the block name of the Model Info block.
I created a filter setting called eliminate_modelinfo.xml and was able to exclude the Model Info block in the comparison between aaa.slx and bbb.slx.

Hi Stozaki,
thanks for your reply, but your proposed solution is actually what I meant by "filtering out any block with "Name" equal to "Model Info" ".
I had already come up with that workaround solution but it only works if the block is named exactly "Model Info". I would rather check the block type than the block name.
Plus, mine was also a more general question about debugging these filters.
Thanks and cheers
Riccardo
