How can you include hyperlinks in the model and the report?

5 views (last 30 days)
I would like to insert a hyperlink into the model canvas via annotations or a docblock. I would then like to view and access this hyperlink on the report when making the system design document via report generator/explorer. How do you do this?

Hi Joshua,
Hypelinks can be added to the model canvas via annotations. This documentation page helps you with adding the hyperlinks to annotations to make them interactive.
Annotations with links are not supported in R2015a version of MATLAB. Please update MATLAB to the latest version.

Hi Aghamarsh,
Thank you for your answer. I understand they can be included via annotation in the canvas. How can the same hyperlinks be represented in the report automatically? How can I automatically include the annotation with the hyperlink in the report? Can hyperlinks be included in SDD's?

Annotations that contain hyperlinks are added as hyperlinks in the Simulink System Design Description. But in R2015a, hyperlinks are displayed as raw HTML text. To use this feature you need to update to the latest version of MATLAB.
To just add a hyperlink to SDD you can refer to this documentation page.
