copySetup

Create copy of cgv.CGV object

Syntax

cgvObj2 = cgvObj1.copySetup()

Description

cgvObj2 = cgvObj1.copySetup() creates a copy of a cgv.CGV object, cgvObj1. The copied object, cgvObj2, has the same configuration as cgvObj1, but does not copy results of the execution.

Examples

Make a copy of a cgv.CGV object, set it to run in a different mode, then run and compare the objects in a cgv.Batch object.

cgvModel = 'rtwdemo_cgv';
cgvObj1 = cgv.CGV(cgvModel, 'connectivity', 'sim');
cgvObj1.run();
cgvObj2 = cgvObj1.copySetup()
cgvObj2.setMode('sil');
cgvObj2.run();

Tips

  • You can use this method to make a copy of a cgv.CGV object and then modify the object to run in a different mode by calling setMode.

  • If you have a cgv.CGV object, which reported errors or failed at execution, you can use this method to copy the object and rerun it. The copied object has the same configuration as the original object, therefore you might want to modify the location of the output files by calling setOutputDir. Otherwise, during execution, the copied cgv.CGV object overwrites the output files.
