Scroll To Messages
When the Show Block Messages command is active, causes the window to scroll automati- cally, following the path of messages so that the user can quickly step through the model.
Generate Trace
Causes ExtendSim to generate a trace file during the simulation. ExtendSim will prompt for a name for the new trace file when the model starts running. The content of the trace file depends on which blocks have been selected to be included. For more information, see the following commands and “Model tracing” on page 726.
Add Selected To Trace
Causes blocks that have been selected in the active model window to be included in the trace file. Trace files are generated if Generate Trace is checked when the model is run.
Add All To Trace
Causes all blocks in the active model window to be included in the trace file. Trace files are generated if Generate Trace is checked when the model is run.
Remove Selected From Trace
Causes blocks that have been selected in the active model window to be removed from the trace file.
Remove All From Trace
Causes all blocks in the active model window to be removed from the trace file. Use this before starting a new type of trace.
Show Tracing Blocks
Causes blocks that have been included in a trace to show the word Trace on them in the model window.
Profile Block Code
Generates a text file showing the percentage of time that each block spent executing during the simulation run. See “Inefficient settings or block code” on page 610 for more information about profiling a model.
Show Debug Messages
Allows the user to turn on and off the messages created using the debugMsg() function.
Window menu
In addition to the standard (Windows only) commands for arrang- ing the windows in ExtendSim, the Window menu lists ExtendSim windows such as the Notebook and Navigator. The window also lists all open models, dialogs, and library windows at the bottom. To bring a window to the top of your workspace, select it from the menu.
Notebook
Opens or brings forward the Notebook for a model. This is the same as choosing the Open Notebook tool. Notebooks are used for controlling model parameters, reporting simulation results, and documenting the model. The words (has data) after the Notebook command indi- cates it has content. For more information, see “Notebooks” on page 586.
