Simulink: programmatically find all blocks of a certain kind
5 views (last 30 days)
I would like to programmatically monitor the usage of certain kinds of blocks, in order to be warned if they are being used.
What i imagine is being able to do something like this (using pseudocode):
num_unwanted_elements = 0;
for el in Simulink.model_elements:
if el.type == "Unwanted_element":
Can i do that? If so, how?

It is my understanding that you want to programmatically find all blocks of a certain kind.
The blocks of a certain kind can be found using findBlocksOfType method of Simulink.
For example - if the model name is "myModel", and you want to find all blocks of type "constant", you can use this method as
It will return handles to all the blocks of "constant" type.
You can also refer the documentation in the following link - https://www.mathworks.com/help/simulink/slref/simulink.findblocksoftype.html
I hope it helps.
