Retrieve lookup table coverage information from cvdata object


coverage = tableinfo(cvdo, object)
coverage = tableinfo(cvdo, object, ignore_descendants)
[coverage, exeCounts] = tableinfo(cvdo, object)
[coverage, exeCounts, brkEquality] = tableinfo(cvdo, object)


coverage = tableinfo(cvdo, object) returns lookup table coverage results from the cvdata object cvdo for the model component object.

coverage = tableinfo(cvdo, object, ignore_descendants) returns lookup table coverage results for object, depending on the value of ignore_descendants.

[coverage, exeCounts] = tableinfo(cvdo, object) returns lookup table coverage results and the execution count for each interpolation/extrapolation interval in the lookup table block object.

[coverage, exeCounts, brkEquality] = tableinfo(cvdo, object) returns lookup table coverage results, the execution count for each interpolation/extrapolation interval, and the execution counts for breakpoint equality.

Input Arguments


cvdata object


Logical value specifying whether to ignore the coverage of descendant objects

1 — Ignore coverage of descendant objects
0 — Collect coverage for descendant objects


Full path or handle to a lookup table block or a model containing a lookup table block.

Output Arguments


A cell array containing vectors that identify the number of times during simulation that the lookup table block input was equivalent to a breakpoint value. Each vector represents the breakpoints along a different lookup table dimension.


The value of coverage is a two-element vector of form [covered_intervals total_intervals], the elements of which are:

covered_intervalsNumber of interpolation/extrapolation intervals satisfied for object
total_intervalsTotal number of interpolation/extrapolation intervals for object

coverage is empty if cvdo does not contain lookup table coverage results for object.


An array having the same dimensionality as the lookup table block; its size has been extended to allow for the lookup table extrapolation intervals.


Collect lookup table coverage for the slvnvdemo_cv_small_controller model and determine the percentage of interpolation/extrapolation intervals coverage collected for the Gain Table block in the Gain subsystem:

mdl = 'slvnvdemo_cv_small_controller';
%Create test spec object
testObj = cvtest(mdl)
%Enable lookup table coverage
testObj.settings.tableExec = 1;
%Simulate the model
data = cvsim(testObj)
blk_handle = get_param([mdl, '/Gain/Gain Table'], 'Handle');
%Retrieve l/u table coverage
cov = tableinfo(data, blk_handle)
%Percent MC/DC outcomes covered
percent_cov = 100 * cov(1) / cov(2)


Use the coverage settings to collect lookup table coverage for a model:

  1. Open the model.

  2. In the Model Editor, select Analysis > Coverage > Settings.

  3. On the Coverage pane of the Configuration Parameters dialog box, select Enable coverage analysis.

  4. Under Coverage metrics, select Lookup Table.

  5. On the Coverage > Results pane, specify the output you need.

  6. Click OK to close the Configuration Parameters dialog box and save your changes.

  7. Simulate the model and review the results.
