Create Configuration List (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: December 19, 2017

    Creates an empty configuration list.

    Calling this node allocates space for each of the configuration list properties. Use the Active Configuration List property to enable a configuration list created by this node.

    Programming Patterns

    Call Create Configuration List Step to add steps to the configuration list.

    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

    list name

    Name of the configuration list. This string is case-insensitive and alphanumeric, and it cannot contain spaces or use reserved words.

    NI-RFSG Property Node Behavior

    When you use the NI-RFSG Property Node to set one of the configuration list properties, that property is set as one of the configuration list steps. Use the Active Configuration List Step property to specify which configuration list step to configure.

    datatype_icon

    set as active list

    Boolean value that indicates whether the configuration list is active.

    NI recommends that you set this input to True when creating the list.

    True This configuration list is the active configuration list.
    False This configuration list is not the active configuration list.
    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.

    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.
