Create text that documents model and save text with model
The DocBlock allows you to create and edit text that documents a model, and save that text with the model. Double-clicking an instance of the block creates a temporary file containing the text associated with this block and opens the file in an editor. Use the editor to modify the text and save the file. Simulink® software stores the contents of the saved file in the model file.
The DocBlock supports HTML, Rich Text Format (RTF), and ASCII text document types. The default editors for these different document types are
HTML — Microsoft® Word (if available). Otherwise, the DocBlock opens HTML documents using the editor specified on the Editor/Debugger Preferences pane of the Preferences dialog box.
RTF — Microsoft Word (if available). Otherwise, the DocBlock opens RTF documents using the editor specified on the Editor/Debugger Preferences pane of the Preferences dialog box.
Text — The DocBlock opens text documents using the editor specified on the Editor/Debugger Preferences pane of the Preferences dialog box.
to change the default editors.
Enter a template symbol name in this field. Embedded Coder software uses this symbol to add comments to the code generated from the model. For more information, see Add Global Comments (Embedded Coder).
Select the type of document associated with the DocBlock. The options are:
Text (the default)
If you are using a DocBlock to add comments to
your code during code generation, ensure that you set the Document
Text. If you set the Document
your comments will not appear in the code.
