ssGetDataTypeName

Get the name of a data type

Syntax

const char *ssGetDataTypeName(SimStruct *S, DTypeId id)

Arguments

S

SimStruct representing an S-Function block.

id

ID of a data type.

Returns

The name of the data type specified by id, if id is valid. Otherwise, returns NULL and reports an error.

Description

Use to obtain the name of a data type.

    Note:   Because this macro reports any error that occurs, you do not need to use ssSetErrorStatus to report the error.

The Simulink® Coder™ product does not support S-functions that contain custom data types. Attempting to generate code for a model that contains this macro results in an error.

Languages

C, C++

Example

The following example gets the name of a custom data type.

const char *dtypeName = ssGetDataTypeName(S, id);
if(dtypeName == NULL) return;
