How to enter a value to a simulation while it is executing

C=a+b; For a=1:1:1000, b=1:1:1000,I want to calculate C Value,,,I will be putting delay after calulating one addition and thereafter I want to give a flexibility to put his\her own 'a','b' value ,,,while code is executing,,,,Is it possible in MATLAB script?,,,if possible ,can anyone give me the hint to perform it

Assuming that the variables a and b correspond to tunable parameters of a block, you can indeed change the value of either variable in the MATLAB workspace and run set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand', 'update') to make the model notice the new values.

If 'a' and 'b' are signals, you may find this section in the documentation useful: Access Block Data During Simulation.


Not sure what you mean by "set block value as Tunable parameter" - the block itself decides whether or not a given parameter is tunable. You can test this by pausing an already running simulation, double-click on the block dialog and see if it is still editable. One tunable-parameters are editable during simulation.

Thank you,,If I want to edit the values of tunnable parameters means I should pause the simulation?

No, you should be able to edit the parameter by double-clicking on the block or using set_param('path/to/block', 'ParamName', 'ParamValue') followed by set_param('modelname', 'SimulationCommand', 'update').
