This example shows how to use the slcoverage.Filter methods to set and get filter names and descriptions.

Create a new filter object by using the slcoverage.Filter class.

filt = slcoverage.Filter;

Set the filter name and description by using setFilterName and setFilterDescription, respectively.

setFilterDescription(filt,'Justify missing coverage for unreachable outcomes');

Get the filter name and description by using filterName and filterDescription with the filter object as the input.

filtName = filterName(filt)
filtDescr = filterDescription(filt)
filtName =


filtDescr =

    'Justify missing coverage for unreachable outcomes'


You can also create, edit, and view filters in Simulink®. See Create, Edit, and View Coverage Filter Rules for more information.
