int32 DAQmxWriteBinaryI16 (TaskHandle taskHandle, int32 numSampsPerChan, bool32 autoStart, float64 timeout, bool32 dataLayout, int16 writeArray, int32 *sampsPerChanWritten, bool32 *reserved);
Writes unscaled signed integer samples to the task.
|Note If you configured timing for your task, your write is considered a buffered write. Buffered writes require a minimum buffer size of 2 samples. If you do not configure the buffer size using DAQmxCfgOutputBuffer, NI-DAQmx automatically configures the buffer when you configure sample timing. If you attempt to write one sample for a buffered write without configuring the buffer, you will receive an error.|
|taskHandle||TaskHandle||The task to write samples to.|
|numSampsPerChan||int32||The number of samples, per channel, to write. You must pass in a value of 0 or more in order for the sample to write. If you pass a negative number, this function returns an error.|
|autoStart||bool32||Specifies whether or not this function automatically starts the task if you do not start it.|
|timeout||float64||The amount of time, in seconds, to wait for this function to write all the samples. To specify an infinite wait, pass -1 (DAQmx_Val_WaitInfinitely). This function returns an error if the timeout elapses.
A value of 0 indicates to try once to write the submitted samples. If this function successfully writes all submitted samples, it does not return an error. Otherwise, the function returns a timeout error and returns the number of samples actually written.
|dataLayout||bool32||Specifies how the samples are arranged, either interleaved or noninterleaved.
||The array of 16-bit samples to write to the task.|
||Reserved for future use. Pass NULL to this parameter.|
||The actual number of samples per channel successfully written to the buffer.|
|status||int32||The error code returned by the function in the event of an error or warning. A value of 0 indicates success. A positive value indicates a warning. A negative value indicates an error.|
