Driver

  • NI-FGEN

Issue Details

I have a signal generator device with multiple channels and want to configure events on each channel, such as a Data Marker. How do I specify which channel I configure the events for?

Solution

You should use the Active Channel FGEN property to specify what event you are configuring, and for which channel. For example, if you wanted to configure Data Marker 0 on channel 0, you'd write 0/DataMarker0 into the Active Channel property node. If you wanted to configure Data Marker 1 on channel 1, you'd write 1/DataMarker1. Any subsequent properties you set after setting the Active Channel property will apply to your specified event.

Additional Information

You can find a summary of your device's available events for exporting and their names by consulting the Routes entry under your device's entry in the NI Signal Generators Help document.
