Find Test Sequence block symbols


symbols = sltest.testsequence.findSymbol(blockPath,Name,Value) returns symbols in the Test Sequence block blockPath matching properties specified by Name,Value pairs. Symbols include data, messages, function calls, and triggers.

This example edits constant DurationLimit in the Test Sequence block, changing it to a local variable of single data type.

1. Load the model.

Model = 'sltestRollRefTestExample';

2. Search for data symbols containing the word duration.

data_names = sltest.testsequence.findSymbol...
    ('sltestRollRefTestExample/Test Sequence','Name','[Dd]uration',...
data_names = 1x1 cell array

3. Read the properties of the DurationLimit constant.

dlProperties = sltest.testsequence.readSymbol...
    ('sltestRollRefTestExample/Test Sequence',data_names{1})
dlProperties = struct with fields:
            Kind: 'Data'
           Scope: 'Constant'
        DataType: 'double'
     Description: ''
        Document: ''
    InitialValue: '5'
            Name: 'DurationLimit'
            Size: ''
             Tag: []

4. Change DurationLimit to a local variable of single data type.

sltest.testsequence.editSymbol('sltestRollRefTestExample/Test Sequence',...

5. Close the model.


Input Arguments

collapse all

Path to a Test Sequence block, including the block name, specified as a string or character vector. Instead of the block path, you can use a block handle.

Example: 'FanSpeedTestHarness/Test Sequence'

Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose Name in quotes.

Example: 'Kind','Message','Scope','Output'

Example: 'Kind','Data','Name','[Aa]ngle','RegExp','on'

The scope defines how the data symbol operates in the block. It is specified as a character vector.

Example: 'Data'

Data symbol scope, specified as a character vector.

Example: 'Parameter'

The name of the test symbols to search

Example: 'Name','Engage'

Example: 'Name','[Dd]uration'

Specifies case

Example: 'CaseSensitive','on'

Specify whether to search the step names using Name as a regular expression

Example: 'RegExp','on'

Output Arguments

collapse all

Cell array of Test Sequence block symbols matching search criteria

Example: cell
