Include components in a report setup file to specify report behavior and insert content, such as tables, lists, and figures, into a report. Use the Report Explorer to add components to a report and to specify their behavior.
Use a combination of these types of components in your report setup file.
|Report Structure Components|
Include a title page, sections, and other components to organize the content of a report.
Include components that obtain information directly from a model to include in a report.
|User-Supplied Information Components|
Include text and graphics that you supply, independent of a model.
|Dynamic Reporting Components|
Set up dynamic control for when to include components and what information to report on for a component, based on data from a model or on other conditions that you specify.
The Simulink® Report Generator™ includes components that get information from a model to include in a report. Using system-based components allows your report to describe the current state of a model. Once the setup file contains these components, you can generate the report whenever you want to capture the latest version of a model.
Property table components display property name/property value pairs for objects in tables. Summary table components insert tables that include specified properties for objects into generated reports. The tables contain one object per row, with each object property appearing in a column.
To use descriptive information from DocBlock blocks, use the
A few examples of system-based components include:
For examples of using system-based components, see:
The Simulink Report Generator also includes system-based components that contain model elements from the following Simulink products:
In addition to using system-based components to extract data
from a system and insert that information into a report, you can also
add content that you, or others, supply. For example, to include text,
To include notes about the report source files, use a
For an example, see Add Introductory Text to the First Chapter (MATLAB Report Generator).
Dynamic reporting components execute conditionally, enabling
you to decide when a child component executes or how many times a
child component executes. To control the report generation flow, use
logical and flow components such as
While Loop, or
A looping component runs its child components a specified number of times. There are several looping components, including logical loops, Handle Graphics® loops, and model and chart loops. For model and chart loops, you can control aspects such as the order in which the report sorts blocks.
For examples, see:
The output format and stylesheet that you select for a report determines most aspects of the generated report formatting. For details, see Report Output Format (MATLAB Report Generator).
In addition to stylesheets that control the format and layout
of the report, for some components you can set properties to specify
formatting details for that specific instance of a component. For
example, for the
Simulink Property Table,
you can specify whether to display table borders or specify the alignment
of text in table cells.
