Auto-connect block to existing line

Lucas 님이 질문을 제출함. 4 Sep 2012
I want to add in some data type conversion blocks infront of some already existing inport blocks. I can create the block and add them to the model and they appear on the port line where I expect them, but they do not connect to that line. They appear above the line and I have to drag them to get them attached to the line. So I was wondering if there was any way I could connect the new block to the line that’s already there from the command line.

How are you "getting the old block out out the way"? I never figured out how to leave lines in place.
Last time I did something like this,
[in1]--line--[out1]
  1. %find_system out1 (or the list of what I was adding to)
  2. get the position of out1 = pos
  3. get the input port to out1
  4. get the line handle
  5. get the source port (out port of in1)
  6. delete the line
  7. set_param out1 to position [pos(1)+dx pos(2) pos(3)+dx pos(4)]
  8. add conv block to 'pos'
  9. addline in1 to conv
  10. addline conv to out1
Side note, if the list is really long, name the blocks 'well' and do a loop at the end to add all the lines. My code, with lines added at every step, took 2-3 hours. Doing lines at the end, took 20 mins. [Might only apply to Simulink 6.6.1]
EDIT: Actually, for your specific question, have you tried (no idea if this will work). get_param the port location (x,y location)
add_line([x y], [x y]) %effectively, draw a 'dot'
or get the port location of the existing block, port location of the new block, and add_line to those

I had no idea you could just drop a block on a line to connect it, that's cool. Learn something everyday. Unfortunately, I think that might just be a GUI feature.
Can you quasi-draw out what you want to add? (I think I just got it, by infront you mean behind?) So.
[inport]--->[subsys where there are 19 other inputs]
and you want?
[inport]-->[conv]-->[subsys]
Played around, got this (step through this)
new_system('simtest')
open_system('simtest')
simulink('open')
%%setup
add_block('simulink/Commonly Used Blocks/In1','simtest/in1')
set_param('simtest/in1','Position',[50 50 100 75])
add_block('simulink/Commonly Used Blocks/Out1','simtest/out1')
set_param('simtest/out1','Position',[500 50 550 75])
add_line('simtest','in1/1','out1/1')
%%real code
%find_system blah blah in1
pos1 = get_param('simtest/in1','Position');
pos2 = [pos1(1)+200 pos1(2) pos1(3)+200 pos1(4)];
set_param('simtest/in1','Position', pos2);
%get a lot of parameters here for in1, name, port number
delete_block('simtest/in1')
add_block('simulink/Commonly Used Blocks/Data Type Conversion','simtest/conv1')
set_param('simtest/conv1','Position', pos2);
%set_param('OutDataType')
add_block('simulink/Commonly Used Blocks/In1','simtest/in1')
set_param('simtest/in1','Position', pos1);
%set_param( name, port number)
add_line('simtest','in1/1','conv1/1')

% the line fom you want connect to your new block "new_block" is an output for a certain block "block1"
%for example new_block is a "constant" block and modelname is the name of your simulink model
add_blck('Simulink/Sources','modelname/new_block')
% to position your block
set_param('modelname/new_block','position' , [x0 y0 x0+x_width y0+y_width])
%connect block
add_line('modelname','block1/1','new_block/1','autorouting','on')
% 'block1/n' means n'th output of block1
% 'new_block/n' means n'th input of new_block
