If getElementNames is a function, you should use round brackets instead of curly brackets:
element_names = getElementNames(elements);


Tried using round brackets still getting below error due to type cell:
You should check the documentation, which states you should input a Simulink.SimulationData.Dataset object, not just a cell:
element_list = getElementNames(dataset) returns the names of all of the elements in the Simulink.SimulationData.Dataset object.
