The value returned from getNumInputsImpl method must be a constant value. But the Value is immutable

3 views (last 30 days)
i get the following error when generating code:
The value returned from getNumInputsImpl method must be a constant value.
Properties used in calculating this value must be Nontunable.
The error occurred for MATLAB System block 'SiL_LUT_1D/MATLAB System1'.
The method:
function num = getNumInputsImpl(obj)
num = obj.Approx.numInputs + 1; % input
The propertie numInputs of Approx(ValueClass):
properties (SetAccess = immutable)
numInputs = 0;
And obj.Approx is a nontunable Property of the System block. So for my understanding, this value can't change in anyway and should be interpreted as a constant value. Any suggestion on a fix or workaround?

A possible workaround is the creation of a vector with size numInputs and using the length of the vector:
num = length(obj.Approx.workaroundVector) + 1;

function num = getNumInputsImpl(obj)
if obj.numInputs ~= obj.Approx.numInputs + 1
obj.numInputs = obj.Approx.numInputs + 1;
num = obj.numInputs; % input
The above approach with the Nontunable Property "numInputs" will give following error during code generation:

You said numInputs is nontunable, did you try to use Nontunable in the property defintion? Like
properties (Nontunable)
numInputs = 0

"Code generation does not support assigning an object of a value class into a nontunable property. For example, obj.prop=v; is invalid when prop is a nontunable property and v is an object based on a value class." from MATLAB Classes Definition for Code Generation
This approach shouldn't even start code generation. Maybe there is a check missing for value classes which are set to a property?
