Issue Details

I want to take measurements from my NI devices directly from within the TestStand environment. Is this possible?

Solution

No you cannot directly take measurements from within the TestStand environment.

Additional Information

TestStand is a ready-to-run test sequence engine that enables you to quickly develop test and validation sequences. To take measurements from your devices you will need to use one of the many supported TestStand action steps to call an external interface such as LabVIEW, CVI or a supported C/C#/C++ editor. You can also use pre-configured IVI drivers using the IVI driver steps to take measurements that you can configure when calling the step instead of using pre-developed code.
