The first time you open the Waveform Viewer for your Simulink model, Model Composer creates a wavedata directory in the directory containing your Simulink model.

Note: You will need write permission for the directory containing your Simulink model.

Data describing the display in the Waveform Viewer is stored in the following files in the wavedata directory:

  • <design_name>.wcfg - This is the waveform configuration file. It contains the names of the signals you are monitoring in your design and how the waveforms for these signals will appear in the Waveform Viewer.
  • <design_name>.wdb - This is the waveform database file. It contains the data necessary to draw the waveforms in the Waveform Viewer.

The names of the signals that are being monitored are stored in the Simulink model (SLX file). If the Simulink model cannot access the data in the wavedata directory (for example, if you moved the model’s SLX file to a different directory and opened it in the new directory), you can display the monitored signals by opening the Waveform Viewer and simulating the design. The waveforms for the monitored signals will then appear in the Waveform Viewer.
