Issue Details

I would like to change the name of a group or channel in an existing TDMS file. There doesn't seem to be a Name property available. Is there a way to change the name?


The channels and group names in TDMS files are not tied to a property. The names are implicitly encoded in the file and cannot be retrieved as a property. You can change the name by wiring the new name to the Property Values input of a TDMS Set Properties function and wiring the Property Names input with NI_UpdateChannelName or NI_UpdateGroupName.
