IviPwrMeter Get Channel Name (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: October 24, 2017

    Returns the physical channel identifier that corresponds to the one-based index specified by the ChannelIndex parameter.

    Note  

    If you pass in a value for the ChannelIndex parameter that is less than one or greater than the value of the Channel Count property, the node returns an empty string in the ChannelName parameter and returns an error.

    Tip  

    By passing 0 for the buffer size, you can ascertain the buffer size required to get the entire channel name string and then call the node again with a sufficiently large buffer.

    instrument handle

    Instrument handle that you obtain from IviPwrMeter Initialize or IviPwrMeter Initialize With Options. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    index (1)

    A 1-based index into the channel table. Valid Range: 1 to number of channels. Default Value: 1

    instrument handle out

    Instrument handle that you obtain from IviPwrMeter Initialize or IviPwrMeter Initialize With Options. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    channel name

    Returns the highest-level channel name that corresponds to the specific driver channel string that is in the channel table at an index you specify.

    Where This Node Can Run:
