Control Scope Blocks Programmatically

Use Simulink Configuration Object

Use a Scope Configuration object for programmatic access to scope parameters.

  • Modify the title, axis labels, and axis limits

  • Turn on or off the legend or grid

  • Control the number of inputs

  • Change the number of displays and which display is active

In this example, the variable myConfiguration stores the mask object obtained using get_param. The example also shows how to change the value of a Scope parameter.

Create a New Model


Add Scope and Time Scope Blocks to Model

add_block('simulink/Sinks/Scope', [mdl '/myScope']);
add_block('dspsnks4/Time Scope', [mdl '/myTimeScope']);

Get a Scope Configuration Object

Many of the scope configuration properties correspond to Scope block parameters.

myConfiguration = get_param([mdl '/myScope'],'ScopeConfiguration')
myConfiguration = 

  Scope Configuration with properties:
