Target Computer file logger

Since R2020b


A Target.FileLog object represents the file logger that runs on a target computer and provides access to methods and properties related to the file logger.

The object provides access to methods and properties that:

  • Enable and disable the file logger.

  • Import file log data.

  • Check for available file log data.

  • Discard unwanted file log data.

Function names are case-sensitive. Type the entire name. Property names are not case-sensitive. You do not need to type the entire name if the characters you type are unique for the property.


A Target.FileLog object is created when you create a Target object by using the slrealtime command. After you create and connect to the Target object, you can access the Target.FileLog object. This example creates and connects to Target object tg, and then starts the file logger on the target computer.

tg = slrealtime('TargetPC1');

The Importing property indicates whether the file logger is importing a file log. When FileLogger is enabled, the file logger imports file log data at the end of simulation runs. You can disable the import by setting the Disable automatic import of file logs option for the real-time application. For more information, see the start function.


The Importing property will be removed in a future release.

Example: 0

The LoggingService property indicates the file logging service status.

Example: 100

The DataAvailable property indicates whether file log data is available for import.

Example: 0
