Hello there, I have created a simulink library for which I now want to change its name and propagate this to the paths of my library blocks. I understand you can use forwarding tables to update the paths of singles blocks but this way I would have to change them one by one and I already have too many blocks. I also tried changing the name given in the slblocks.m but the blocks paths won't automatically update. Is there any way to make my life easier?
Thanks in advance

@Raghunandan please do!, OP may not reply because it's too old but you can provide your own to demonstrate.

What about this?
% Find the library blocks in current system
h = find_system(gcs,'LinkStatus','resolved');
origlib = get_param(h,'ReferenceBlock');
oldlibname = 'myoldlib';
newlibname = 'mynewlib';
% Update the references to the new library
newlib = strrep(origlib,[oldlibname '/'],[newlibname '/']);
set_func = @(x,y) set_param(x,'ReferenceBlock',y);
cellfun(set_func,h, newlib);
