I built a simulink model, there was an very small gain 5.42e-6, could you help me to express it as 0.0000542? Thanks

simply enter it in the gain block,
when you double click on it, enter the value in the 'Gain' field. You can simply enter it like 0.0000542

Hi, I use the cocosim toolsets, for example, I set the gain to 0.000001 in the original simulink model, but it would be 1e-6 in the generated simulink model

Well, I tried to embed the vpa function into a MATLAB Function but as I previously guessed, it is not supported in Simulink. According to my knowledge, MATLAB forces you to use scientific notation in any place, you are just able to change the display format from MATLAB command line and Simulink. In the model, if you change the display format to decimal(Stored Integer), then you are able to see up to 4 digits but more digits are automatically converted to scientific notation.
