Get Terminal Name (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: December 19, 2018

    Returns the fully qualified name of the signal being queried.

    Signals can be triggers, clocks, or events.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    session in

    Instrument session obtained from Initialize With Options .

    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

    signal

    Signal for which you want to query the terminal.

    Name Description
    Start Trigger NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Start Trigger.
    Ref Trigger NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Reference Trigger.
    Advance Trigger NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Advance Trigger.
    Ready for Start Event NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Ready for Start Event.
    Ready for Ref Event NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Ready for Reference Event.
    Ready for Advance Event NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Ready for Advance Event.
    End of Record Event NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the End of Record Event.
    Done Event NI-RFSA returns the terminal name for the Done Event.
    Reference Clock NI-RFSA does not support this option for Get Terminal Name.
    User NI-RFSA routes a user-defined signal.
    datatype_icon

    signal identifier

    User-defined signal to route.

    Specify the signal you have implemented using FPGA extensions.

    datatype_icon

    session out

    Reference to your instrument session passed to the next node.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
