int32 DAQmxSwitchConnectMulti (const char connectionList[], bool32 waitForSettling);


Makes one or more connections specified by a connection list. You can specify only the two endpoints, or you can specify the explicit path between two endpoints. This function can make connections on multiple devices, but each connection must reside on a single device. In the event of an error, connecting stops at the point in the list where the error occurred. If you set waitForSettling to TRUE, this function returns only after making all connections. If you want to wait for settling between connections, use this function multiple times to make connections separately.
