Define System Object Information

This example shows how to define information to display for a System object™.

Define System Object Info

You can define your own info method to display specific information for your System object. The default infoImpl method returns an empty struct. This infoImpl method returns detailed information when the info method is called using info(x,'details') or only count information if it is called using info(x).

methods (Access = protected)
   function s = infoImpl(obj,varargin)
      if nargin>1 && strcmp('details',varargin(1))
         s = struct('Name','Counter',...
             'Properties', struct('CurrentCount', ...
              obj.pCount,'Threshold',obj.Threshold));
      else
         s = struct('Count',obj.pCount);
      end
   end
end

classdef Counter < matlab.System
   % Counter Count values above a threshold
   
   properties
      Threshold = 1
   end
   
   properties (DiscreteState)
      Count
   end
   
   methods (Access = protected)
      function setupImpl(obj)
         obj.Count = 0;
      end
       
      function resetImpl(obj)
         obj.Count = 0;
      end
       
      function y = stepImpl(obj,u)
         if (u > obj.Threshold)
            obj.Count = obj.Count + 1;
         end
         y = obj.Count;
      end
     
      function s = infoImpl(obj,varargin)
         if nargin>1 && strcmp('details',varargin(1))
            s = struct('Name','Counter',...
            'Properties', struct('CurrentCount', ...
            obj.pCount,'Threshold',obj.Threshold));
         else
            s = struct('Count',obj.pCount);
      end
   end
end
