% Number of inputs: 3
% If expression (e.g., u1 ~= 0):
u1 == 1
% Elseif expressions (comma-separated list, e.g., u2 == 2, u3 == 3):
(u2 == 2) && (u3 == 3)
% Show else condition:
Ensure that each condition within the Elseif expressions field is properly formatted using logical operators like && (AND) or || (OR).
Separate multiple elseif expressions with commas, if there are more than one.
Here’s the corrected entry based on your input:
If expression:
u1 == 1
Elseif expressions:
(u2 == 2) && (u3 == 3)
Ensure there are no extra spaces or unbalanced parentheses.
Double-check variable names and ensure they match the input names used in your Simulink model.
If you find the solution helpful and it resolves your issue, it would be greatly appreciated if you could accept the answer. Also, leaving an upvote and a comment are also wonderful ways to provide feedback.

Hi Maya,
You are getting this error because the square brackets and '&&' are not allowd in IF block. The allowed opertators are <, <=, ==, ~=, >, >=, &, |, ~, ( ), unary-minus. So the modified equation as per this would be as below.
(u2==2) & (u3==3)
I hope this helps!

Hello Aman,
I want the logical AND to perform. "&" will give other result.

I think you must delete all spaces in the second condition:
