findUsages (unit, unitprefix)

Find out how a unit or unit prefix is used


[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj)
[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj,model)
[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj,model,dose)


[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj) returns a vector of components that use the unit or unit prefix object obj and a table providing details about how the obj is used in the BuiltInLibrary and UserDefinedLibrary. For details of what SimBiology® checks to decide whether a unit or unit prefix is used by another component, see Component Usage.

[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj,model) also searches for usages of the obj in model, which is a SimBiology model, or a vector of model objects.

[componentList,usageTable] = findUsages(obj,model,dose) also searches for usages of the obj in dose, which is a ScheduleDose object, RepeatDose object, or a vector of dose objects.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Unit or unit prefix, specified as a unit object, or unitPrefix object

SimBiology model, specified as a model object or vector of model objects.

Dose object, specified as a ScheduleDose object, RepeatDose object, or vector of dose objects.

Output Arguments

collapse all

List of model components that use the unit or unit prefix, returned as a vector.

Usage information, returned as a table. Table variables are:

Create the unit object.

gram = sbioselect('Type','Unit','Name','gram');

Check and see how the gram unit is used in the built-in library. If you have a custom library, the function also searches it.
