getPersistentVariables

Get persistent variables from the Simulink Real-Time target computer to MATLAB

Description

example

variables_struct = getPersistentVariables(target_object) gets persistent variables values from the persistent variables on the target computer and places these values into a structure of MATLAB variables on the development computer.

Examples

collapse all

The getPersistentVariables function and setPersistentVariables function enable you to access persistent variables that are created and updated in the real-time application by using the Persistent Variable Read block and Persistent Variable Write block.

Get persistent variable values from target computer tg.

myPersist = getPersistentVariables(tg)
myPersist =

     []

Change the value of Variable1 in the myPersist structure. Add Variable1 to the structure.

myPersist.Variable1 = 10;
myPersist.Variable2 = int8([1, 2; 3, 4]);
myPersist
myPersist = 

  struct with fields:

    Variable1: 10
    Variable2: [2×2 int8]

Set the persistent variable values on the target computer. Get the variables from the target computer.

setPersistentVariables(tg,myPersist)
myMorePersist = getPersistentVariables(tg)
myMorePersist = 

  struct with fields:

    Variable1: 10
    Variable2: [2×2 int8]

Input Arguments

collapse all

Provides access to methods that manipulate the target computer properties.
