what is the value of these constants??

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a model in which some constant elements have words as value.I guess somewhere in the model they are defined(maybe they depend on other parameters?), but as long as there is not any from-goto related to them, how is one supposed to know their real value and how they are calculated?

Some times constants are literally just assigned words, characters or "strings" as their values.
For example, I could have a variable called "Color", and the value could be set to "Blue" or "b" maybe. Neither "Blue" nor "b" have a numeric value, but if I want to know the status of "Color" I could write code to read the words
Hope that helps explain a possible reason they are there! :)

I see but how I can have access to the code that defines these constants in the simulink model?Opening their blocks doesn't help since they seem regular constants.
