Call C++ Class Methods Directly From a C Function Block
This example shows how to use the C Function block to call C++ class methods. In this example, a C++ class and its methods are defined in
adder_cpp.h and implemented in
To run this example model, you must configure MATLAB® to use a C++ compiler. This can be done using the
mex -setup C++ command, and selecting a C++ compiler.
To enable access to the C++ class from the C Function block, in the model, specify the header file and the source file in the Configuration Parameters > Simulation Target pane. In this model, the custom code header file
adder_cpp.h declares an
adder class along with the class methods.
In the Output Code section, the class method is called. In this example, the ports of the C Function block are configured as follows:
adderObjis a persistent symbol of the C Function block, which instantiates the class object for use in the block. The object is destroyed at the end of simulation.
The input of the C Function block is mapped to
increment, which is an input argument to the class method
The output of the C Function block is mapped to
output, which receives the return value of the class method
