Issue Details

I have an NI Scope and I need to know its onboard memory size programmatically. Is there a property I can read to get this information?

Solution

You can use the Horizontal:Memory Size Property to read the total onboard memory size in bytes. If you are interested in reading the memory size per channel, you can use it along with the Inherent IVI Attributes:Driver Capabilities:Channel Count Property.

To do this, you need to add a property node to your NI-SCOPE code, and add the two properties as shown in the screenshot below.
