ssGetTaskTime

Get the current time for the current task

Syntax

time_T ssGetTaskTime(SimStruct *S, st_index)

Arguments

S

SimStruct representing an S-Function block.

st_index

Index of the sample time corresponding to the task for which the current time is to be returned.

Returns

A value of type time_T.

Description

Use to determine the current time (time_T) of the task corresponding to the sample rate specified by st_index. You can use this macro in mdlOutputs and mdlUpdate to compute the output of your block. See matlabroot/extern/include/tmwtypes.h for a description of the time_T data type.

The ssGetTaskTime macro should be called only inside an ssIsSampleHit check. It will not give the correct results if called with the tid passed into mdlOutputs.

Languages

C, C++

Example

The following example illustrates a correct usage of this macro:

static void mdlOutputs( SimStruct *S, int_T tid ) 
{
	double t; 
	if(ssIsSampleHit(S,0,tid)) { 
		t = ssGetTaskTime(S,0); 
		ssPrintf("Task 0 sample hit in %s time = %g\n",
					ssGetPath(S),t); 
	} 
	if(ssIsSampleHit(S,1,tid)) { 
		t = ssGetTaskTime(S,1); 
		ssPrintf("Task 1 sample hit in %s time = %g\n",
					ssGetPath(S),t); 
	} 
}
