plcrunextmode

Run external mode visualization

Description

example

plcrunextmode(opc_host,target_ide,mdl_name,log_file) runs external mode visualization using the settings specified in the arguments. All the logged signals are displayed in the Simulation Data Inspector.

plcrunextmode(___,idx_list) runs external mode visualization and displays only the logged signals identified by the indices in the idx_list .

plcrunextmode(___,name_list) runs external mode visualization and displays only the logged signals identified by the names in the name_list.
