Embedded coder automatic string replacement in comments

4 views (last 30 days)
I would like more control over the block comments in the generated code. The comments are added to the following field:
Right click block > Properties > General > Description
However '/*' and '*/' strings entered in the 'Description' box will appear as '/+' and '+/' in the generated code. I need '/*' and '*/' strings in specific places in the comments for doxygen purposes. Can I disable this string replacement?

There is functionality in place to support doxygen formatting in the generated comments. From the following documentation:
you will notice that you can customize the function banner which will change the formatting of the comments generated for functions (such as for an atomic subsystem). Some of the formatting options available are related to doxygen. The only issue is that customizing the function banner would not be specific to any given function/block, but describes the general format of the banner for all functions. Also, you cannot go beyond the formatting options that are available and add '/*' strings in the block comments because they will still be replaced with '/+' in the generated code to avoid errors that would be caused by adding '/*' in the comments incorrectly.

Hi! Is it possible to make block description of a simulink function block displayed above the function header in the generated code instead of inside the function body?
Please refer to my question below for more details. Thank you!
