Why can't I change my RTL destination directory using the dspba.set_param command as shown in the DSP Builder Handbook?

Description

Due to an update in the Quartus® II 15.0 software release, the above command is no longer functional, even though it still shows in the handbook.

The handbook describes using "dspba.set_param(control{1},\'destination\',dest_dir)" to change the RTL destination directory.

Workaround/Fix

To change your RTL destination directory in the Quartus II software release 15.0 and later, use the command:

dspba.SetRTLDestDir(model,dest_dir)

For example, if you are using the demo_fft.mdl example that comes with DSP Builder Advanced, you could use this command:

dspba.SetRTLDestDir(\'demo_fft\',\'MyRTL\')

A future release of the documentation will reflect this change.
