Configure Output Mode (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: September 26, 2018

Sets the output mode of the waveform generator, which determines how the waveform generator produces waveforms.

The waveform generator must not be in the Generating state when you call this node.

datatype_icon

session in

Handle that identifies your instrument session previously allocated by Initialize With Channels.

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

output mode

Mode that determines the waveform output that the waveform generator produces.

The value you specify determines which nodes and properties you can use to configure the waveform.

Name Value Description
Standard Function 0 Generates standard function waveforms such as sine, square, and triangle.
Frequency List 1 Generates a standard function using a list of frequencies you define.
Arbitrary Waveform 2 Generates waveforms from user-created or user-provided waveform arrays of numeric data.
Arbitrary Sequence 3 Generates downloaded waveforms in the order you specify.
Script 4 Allows you to use scripting to link and loop multiple waveforms in complex combinations.

Default: Standard Function

session out

Reference to your instrument session to wire to the next node.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
