Issue Details

When using CAN FD on a VeriStand, there is no option to set ISO mode on a VeriStand. How can I set the ISO mode?


ISO mode cannot be set on a VeriStand. After working on the frame and signal values in the NI-XNET Database Editor, the following window pops up asking for ISO mode only in FD mode. 
There are three options for users to choose from: ISO, Non-ISO and ISO legacy.

To summarize, ISO mode is the value that must be specified as the default setting when creating the database, rather than the value specified by the VeriStand.
