    This example shows how to view a data element in the Interface Editor.

    Create a Simulink.interface.Dictionary object by opening an existing interface dictionary.

    interfaceDictObj ='myInterfaceDict.sldd')
    interfaceDictObj = 
      Dictionary with properties:
        DictionaryFileName: 'myInterfaceDict.sldd'
                Interfaces: [1×1 Simulink.interface.dictionary.DataInterface]
                 DataTypes: [0×0 Simulink.interface.dictionary.DataType]

    Use the getElement function to access a data element.

    dataElem1 = getElement(interfaceObj,'element1')
    dataElem1 = 
      DataElement with properties:
               Name: 'element1'
               Type: [1×1 Simulink.interface.dictionary.ValueType]
        Description: ''
         Dimensions: '1'
              Owner: [1×1 Simulink.interface.dictionary.DataInterface]

    Use the show function to display the data element in the Interface Editor.
