|Dials & Gauges Blockset Release Notes|
Upgrading from an Earlier Release
This section describes the upgrade issues involved in moving from the Dials & Gauges Blockset 1.1.1 to Version 1.1.2.
If you are upgrading from a version earlier than 1.1.1, then you should see Upgrading from an Earlier Release.
Change in Numerical Value of Buttons and Switches
In earlier versions of the Dials & Gauges Blockset, ActiveX control blocks in the Buttons & Switches library returned a numerical value of
-1 when they were in the "on" state. As of Version 1.1.2, the same blocks return a numerical value of
1 when they are in the "on" state. The "off" state is unaffected by this change, and continues to return a numerical value of
|Note More generally, this change in behavior applies to your own ActiveX controls if they return a property whose data type is Boolean.|
Here are two possible ways to upgrade your existing models that use button or switch blocks:
-1for the Gain parameter. The Gain block is in the Simulink Math library.
If you previously used a Data Type Conversion block to convert to a Simulink Boolean value, then you do not need to change your model.
Removal of Dialog Box Field for Off-Block Controls
The Event on which to output field has been removed from the Block Parameters dialog box for off-block controls. Off-block dials are not supported.
