How can I add more tabs to the block dialog box of a simscape component?

Apart from the default tabs that are shown in the block dialog box of a simscape component block (i.e. 'Parameters', 'Variables'...), how can I add (or remove) more tabs? Thanks!

Hi Argiñe,
It is not possible to make these kinds of changes to the dialogs of blocks from standard Simulink libraries unless you break their library links - which I would not recommend.
Instead, create your own custom mask on top of any block. On that custom mask, you can include whatever tabs and parameters you would like. To create a mask on top of the Simscape block, right click on the block, select "Mask", and then select "Create mask".
If you have not worked with Simulink masks before, I would read through some of our documentation first. To start, take a look at this page on masking fundamentals. Then, you could create a mask by following the steps in this example.
To read more about masks in Simulink, see this documentation page.

Hi Julia,
Thank you very much for your answer. I will create my own mask as I usually do in Simulink.
