Hi, when I want to run a script on a selected simulink object, I use "gca" to get its handle. If I select many objects, "gca" return only the last selected. Ho can I get handles of ALL selected objects?
Thanks Adriano

gca won't return the selected object, but the current axe in a figure (get current axe)
I guess you meant gcb (get current block).
gcb only return one block.
if you want multiple blocks :
MyBlocks = find_system(gcs,'Selected','on')

To get an array of all selcted blocks use find_system(bdroot, 'Selected', 'on');
