Changing the size and position of the simulink block

214 views (last 30 days)
How can I change the position and size of the simulink block from the matlab command window?
sys = 'testmodel';
new_system(sys);
load_system(sys);
add_block('Simulink/Commonly Used Blocks/Subsystem',[sys '/subsystem])
add_block('builtin/Outport','testmodel/ouput1','MakeNameUnique','on')
now i have created one subsystem and one outport.
what are the commands i need to use for changing the model size and position of the block?
Thanks a lot

set_param('Model_Name/Block_Name','Position',[50 50 200 100])

by using get_param
  • get_param(Object,Parameter)
for example, the following code will open the vdp example and will give you the position of the gain block (Mu) inside it:
open_system('vdp')
get_param('vdp/Mu','position')

You need to use following command:
get_param(pathOfsystem, 'Position')
this will retuen you a 1X4 matrix in which positions will be stored in a manner [X Y Width Height]
