how to get a parameter fo a block while simulation?

2 views (last 30 days)
Good day. I've got a question: how can I get the output parameter of (any) block while simulation? For instance, I have the followng model: two reservoirs exchanging the defined amount of liquid (because the pressure in reservoir1 is 1000Pa while the pressure in reservoir2 is 0Pa). And, let's say, I want the subsystem turn into red once the reservoir1 is empty.
So I write the code for one of the callbacks for this subsystems. But which one to choose? LoadFcn? StartFcn? and what should I write inside? I thought sth like
RVolume = get_param('untitled/reservoir1/', 'volume'); while (RVolume > 0) set_param('untitled/reservoir1/','BackgroundColor', 'blue'); end set_param('untitled/reservoir1/','BackgroundColor', 'red');
but the reservoir block does not have such a parameter as 'volume', hence the error message shows up. Then I decided to know all the parameters of the reservoir block, so I typed
get_param('untitled/reservoir1/','ObjectParameters') in the main matlab window
that is the result: and I can not find the parameter

In fact, localvarnames shows me 'volume' as one of the parameters. but I cannot call it like
as it says there is no such a parameter named 'volume'
So please help
