Find if component is referenced to another model
Find If Component Is Reference
Find whether or not the component is a reference to another model.
The component is not a reference.
model = systemcomposer.createModel('archModel',true); rootArch = get(model,'Architecture'); newComponent = addComponent(rootArch,'newComponent'); flag = isReference(newComponent)
flag = logical 0
The component is a reference.
model = systemcomposer.createModel('archModel'); rootArch = get(model,'Architecture'); newComponent = addComponent(rootArch,'newComponent'); createSimulinkBehavior(newComponent,'newModel'); flag = isReference(newComponent)
flag = logical 1
flag — Whether component is reference
true or 1 |
false or 0
Whether component is reference, returned as a logical.
|architecture||A System Composer™ architecture represents a system of components and how they interface with each other structurally and behaviorally. You can represent specific architectures using alternate views.|
Different types of architectures describe different aspects of systems:
|Compose Architecture Visually|
|model||A System Composer model is the file that contains architectural information, including components, ports, connectors, interfaces, and behaviors.|
Perform operations on a model:
System Composer models are stored as SLX files.
|Create an Architecture Model with Interfaces and Requirement Links|
|component||A component is a nontrivial, nearly independent, and replaceable part of a system that fulfills a clear function in the context of an architecture. A component defines an architecture element, such as a function, a system, hardware, software, or other conceptual entity. A component can also be a subsystem or subfunction.||Represented as a block, a component is a part of an architecture model that can be separated into reusable artifacts.||Components|
|port||A port is a node on a component or architecture that represents a point of interaction with its environment. A port permits the flow of information to and from other components or systems.|
There are different types of ports:
|connector||Connectors are lines that provide connections between ports. Connectors describe how information flows between components or architectures.||A connector allows two components to interact without defining the nature of the interaction. Set an interface on a port to define how the components interact.||Connections|
|reference component||A reference component is a component whose definition is a separate architecture model or Simulink® behavior model.||A reference component represents a logical hierarchy of other compositions. You can reuse compositions in the model using reference components.|
A subsystem component is a Simulink subsystem that is part of the parent System Composer architecture model.
|Add Simulink subsystem behavior to a component to author a subsystem component in System Composer. You cannot synchronize and reuse subsystem components as Reference Component blocks because the component is part of the parent model.|
|state chart||A state chart diagram demonstrates the state-dependent behavior of a component throughout its state lifecycle and the events that can trigger a transition between states.||Add Stateflow® chart behavior to describe a component using state machines. You cannot synchronize and reuse Stateflow chart behaviors as Reference Component blocks because the component is part of the parent model.|
|sequence diagram||A sequence diagram is a behavior diagram that represents the interaction between structural elements of an architecture as a sequence of message exchanges.||You can use sequence diagrams to describe how the parts of a static system interact.|
