Reset Interchange Check (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: March 3, 2017

    Configures the interchangeability checking for NI-DMM to ignore previous configuration operations.

    Run this node at the beginning of a test module to determine whether or not the operation of this test module depends on the operation of previous test modules.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument identifier from previous NI-DMM nodes.

    Default: None

    datatype_icon

    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

    session out

    Instrument identifier for subsequent NI-DMM nodes.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Designing and Testing for Interchangeability

    When developing a complex test system that consists of multiple test modules, each test module should be designed to completely configure the state of every instrument it uses. If a test module does not completely configure the state of an instrument, the instrument could contain configuration settings from previous test modules. Depending on which test modules have already run, these configuration settings could change the behavior of the test module, which is an interchangeability problem.

    Run this node to test for interchangeability problems. After you run this node, the interchangeability checking algorithms in NI-DMM ignore all previous configuration operations. By running this node at the beginning of a test module, you can determine whether the test module has dependencies on the operation of previously executed test modules.

    This node does not clear the list of previously recorded interchangeability warnings. To guarantee that Get Next Interchange Warning only returns interchangeability warnings generated after running this node, you must clear the list of interchangeability warnings using one of the following methods:

    • To see the contents of each warning as you clear the list, repeatedly run Get Next Interchange Warning until no more interchangeability warnings are returned.
    • To clear the list without viewing the contents of each warning, run Clear Interchange Warnings.

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
