Create instrument manager component for App Designer components in instrument panel UI

Since R2021b



hInstManager = slrealtime.ui.tool.InstrumentManager(hFigure) creates an instrument manager component that manages instruments for App Designer components, which you add to an instrument panel uifigure figure.

The instrument manager component manages a collection of Instrument objects that are used by the instrument panel and provides the features of Simulink Real-Time app components. When an instrument panel switches target computers, the managed instruments are removed from the previous target computer and added to the new target computer.

For information about control properties, see slrealtime.ui Properties. If deploying an app, it is important to set the TargetSource property for this control.

Create an instrument manager component and add instruments to it for App Designer components.

% Create figure 
hFig = uifigure(); 
hAxes = uiaxes(hFig); 
hGauge = uigauge(hFig); 
% Create some slrealtime.Instruments 
hInstAxes = slrealtime.Instrument(); 
hInstAxes.connectLine(hAxes, 'SineWave'); 
hInstGauge = slrealtime.Instrument(); 
hInstGauge.connectScalar(hGauge, 'BlockPath', 1); 
% Create InstrumentManager object and add instruments 
hInstMgr = slrealtime.ui.tool.InstrumentManager(hFig); 
hInstMgr.Instruments = [hInstAxes hInstGauge];

To remove instruments from the hIstMgr.Instruments array, you can use any array modification method. For example, this operation removes both instruments from the hInstMgr.Instruments array.

hInstMgr.Instruments = [];
