To set this property, use the functions hdlset_param or makehdl. To view the property value, use the function hdlget_param.

HDL configurations can be either inline with the rest of the VHDL code for an entity or external in separate VHDL source files. By default, HDL Coder™ includes configurations for a model within the generated VHDL code. If you are creating your own VHDL configuration files, suppress the generation of inline configurations.
