SimulinkRealTime.utils.getTargetSystemTime

Gets the current value of the target computer system clock

Syntax

date_vector = SimulinkRealTime.utils.getTargetSystemTime
date_vector = SimulinkRealTime.utils.getTargetSystemTime(target_object)

Description

example

date_vector = SimulinkRealTime.utils.getTargetSystemTime returns the system time of the default target computer as a date vector. The target computer must be running and in communication with the development computer.

example

date_vector = SimulinkRealTime.utils.getTargetSystemTime(target_object) returns the system time of the specified target computer as a date vector.
