Issue Details

I'm trying to figure out what reference clock my NI-DAQmx device is using. Is there a way for me to read this value?


You can use a DAQmx Timing Property Node to read clock sources. Below is an image displaying how to read a reference clock source.

Additional Information

You can also use this property node to assign a reference clock source to the module. Simply right click on the reference clock source and select Change To » Write. Below is an image displaying this process.

If you're looking for other information on your DAQmx Task, you may try looking through some of the other DAQmx property nodes to see if you can find the task information you're looking for. You can find a complete list of DAQmx property nodes in the LabVIEW palette Measurement I/O » NI DAQmx » Advanced » I/O Constants and Property Nodes.
