Simulink: Can you invert the constant block?

is there a way to "invert" the constant block?
As you know, it is possible to name a variable as a value in the constant block, which is then output as a signal. Is it possible to invert this? So enter a signal and write it into the named variable in the workspace?
Thank you!

The 'To Workspace' block can save into a Timeseries, Array, Structure or Structure with time. It will save this type into the variable 'out' variable by default.
If you want to move the variable from the 'out' structure into the Base Workspace, you will need to use a script to copy the variable.
Since the To Workspace variables only end up in the Base Workspace after the simulation is stopped, this isn't really a hassle I would say.

If you want to avoid the To Workspace block logging a lengthy array, you can put the To Workspace block inside a Triggered Subsystem and connect a 'true' to it. Then it will only save one instance of the signal.
