Perhaps you can create a Pause block in your model?

I don't really understand what you want to do but you can strat, stop or pause your model excution with this command lines.

    set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand','start');
    set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand','continue');
    set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand','pause');
    set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand','stop');

If you to stop the model after 20s of simulution you can use get_param('modelname', 'SimulationTime'); Or using the clock for stopping in real time...


Thanks for the response,,but my requirment is like i have to run and stop whenver i want using GUI

Arun: If you want to use GUI callbacks, you should use Poulin's suggested commands in those callbacks.
