Examples and How To

Specify Chart Properties

Tells you how to specify properties for your chart. Part of the interface for a chart to its Simulink® model is set when you specify the properties for a chart

Set the Stateflow Block Update Method

Implementing different Stateflow® interfaces in a Simulink model requires you to set the update method for your chart. This section describes each of the settings for the update method of your chart
