The block parameters of the new block are identical to those of the
original. The new block appears in front of any blocks that it overlaps.
'src' block is a Subsystem block,
add_block copies all the blocks in the subsystem.
block = add_block( returns
the handle of the newly created block.
add_block( creates a copy of the

arguments must occur in parameter/value pairs.
add_block( creates a unique name for the new

model into which you add the new block. By default,
add_block( applies only to Inport blocks.
It creates a copy with the same port number as the

The first part of the
path/text argument is the
path of the model or chart where you want the annotation or note.
Append to the path a backslash (/), followed by the text for the annotation
or note. The
position_array argument is a 1x4 array,
[left, top, right, bottom], that gives
the position of the left top corner of the annotation or note in pixels,
relative to the upper left corner of the model or chart. If the annotation
is autosized (the default), you can specify a 1x2 array
top]. Positive x and y values are to the right of and down
from the origin, respectively, and negative x and y values are to
the left of up from the origin, respectively.
Before you add a block from a source model, open the source

opens visibly). Also open the destination model if it is different
from the source model.
