Customize generated global variable identifiers.
Category: Code Generation > Identifiers
Enter a macro that specifies whether, and in what order, certain text is to be included in the generated identifier. The macro can include a combination of the following format tokens.
Insert name-mangling text if required to avoid naming collisions.
Insert name of object (block, signal or signal object, state, parameter or parameter object) for which identifier is being generated.
Insert root model name into identifier, replacing unsupported characters
with the underscore (
Required for model referencing.
Insert text that you specify for the
Insert the name of a storage class that is associated with the data item.
Avoid name collisions in general. One way is to avoid using default block names (for
Gain2...) when your model has many
blocks of the same type.
Where possible, increase the Maximum identifier length to accommodate the length of the identifiers you expect to generate. Reserve at least three characters for name-mangling text.
To control the case (upper or lower case) of the text that each token represents,
include decorators such as
[U_] in your macro. See Control Case with Token Decorators.
If you specify
$R, the value you specify for Maximum
identifier length must be large enough to accommodate full expansions of
When a name conflict occurs between an identifier within the scope of a higher-level model and an identifier within the scope of a referenced model, the code generator preserves the identifier from the referenced model. Name mangling is performed on the identifier in the higher-level model.
This parameter setting only determines the name of objects, such as signals and
parameters, if the object is set to
For referenced models, if the Global variables parameter does
not contain a
$R token (which represents the name of the reference
model), code generation prepends the
$R token to the identifier
You can use the Model Advisor to identify models in a model referencing hierarchy for which code generation changes configuration parameter settings.
On the Modeling tab, select Model Advisor.
Select By Task.
Run the Check code generation identifier formats used for model reference check.
