Create file as basis for test case input signal data



input = createInputDataFile(tc,file) creates an input file for a test case. The file includes the signals based on the inport blocks in the model specified for the test case tc. You enter the time and signal data either in Microsoft® Excel® or, for MAT-files, using the signal editor in the Test Manager.

For information on the file format the Test Manager uses for Microsoft Excel files, see Format Test Case Data in Excel.

input = createInputDataFile(tc,file,Name,Value) uses additional arguments specified by one or more Name,Value pair arguments.

Create the input file template for a test case, using the Excel file format. Name the sheet for the template Optics. Creating the file also adds it as input in the test case. After you create the file, edit it to populate it with signal data.

% Create test file
tf = sltest.testmanager.TestFile('Excel Input Test File');

% Create test suite and test case
ts = createTestSuite(tf,'Excel Test Suite');
tc = createTestCase(ts,'baseline','Excel Input Test Case');

% Assign the system under test to the test case

% Generate Excel file template and add it to Inputs section, specifying the sheet name
input = createInputDataFile(tc,'C:\MyHomeDir\myexcel.xlsx','Sheet','Optics');
