SimBiology calling a function

I am familiar with the SimBiology functionality that allows calling a user defined MATLAB function. Is there a shorthand to pass all species to that function?
For example what I'm looking to be able to do is call:
P= myfunction(X,P,0.5);
rather than
where X is a vector with elements containing each species in the model, and P all the parameters.
Thanks for any help/suggestions!

Have a look at the attached code. simbiology_ml_answers is the main script. The steps are as follows:
  • Get species names with
speciesNames = get(m1.Species, 'Name');
  • Build a string containing all species names
  • If you use your own function in a rule, put the string into the rule (with added information like the function name)
As you can see in the code there are some additional tweaks necessary to prevent things like algebraic loops.
