Get Simulation Phase of Simulink Model

2 views (last 30 days)
I want to get the current simulation phase of my Simulink model.
Let's take the 'busdemo' model as an example.
open_system('busdemo')
busdemo([],[],[],'compile');
Now the model is in the 'compile' phase and I want to get this information in Matlab.
The Simulink Report Generator seems to provide a check if the model is in the compile phase:
However I'm restricted to Matlab 2016b and I think there should be another way to get the current simulation phase.
Cheers,
Patrick

Check the status of a simulation.
get_param('ModelName','SimulationStatus')
The software returns 'stopped', 'initializing', 'running', 'paused', 'compiled', 'updating', 'terminating', or 'external' (used with the Simulink Coder™ product).

It is probably not a bug, but a bad name.
When you get the SimulationStatus immediately after setting the model to 'compile', it returns 'paused' (though the name 'paused' does not make sense). If the compiling is finished, it returns the status as 'compiled', which makes sense.
'continue' is used to change status after setting 'SimulationCommand' to 'pause'.
To change your status, I think it is model([],[],[],'term')
