Use this VI to route signals (clocks, triggers, and events) to the output terminal you specify. Refer to your device documentation for valid signal destinations.

Any routes created within a session persist after the session closes to prevent signal glitching. To unconfigure signal routes created in previous sessions, set the reset instrument parameter in the niHSDIO Init Generation Session VI or the niHSDIO Init Acquisition Session VI to TRUE or use the niHSDIO Reset Device VI.

If you export a signal with this VI and commit the session, the signal is routed to the output terminal you specify. If you then reconfigure the signal to have a different output terminal, the previous output terminal is tristated after the session is committed. If you change output terminal to Do Not Export when you commit the session, the previous output terminal is tristated.

signal identifier describes the signal being exported.

You can select Script Trigger 0, Script Trigger 1, Script Trigger 2, Script Trigger 3, Marker 0, Marker 1, Marker 2, Marker 3, or None.

Note  When using the NI 6544/6545/6547/6548, Script Trigger 3 and Marker 3 are unavailable.

error in (no error) describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370520P-01/cbool.gif

status is TRUE (X) if an error occurred before this VI or function ran or FALSE (checkmark) to indicate a warning or that no error occurred before this VI or function ran. The default is FALSE.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370520P-01/ci32.gif

code is the error or warning code. The default is 0. If status is TRUE, code is a negative error code. If status is FALSE, code is 0 or a warning code.

source identifies where an error occurred. The source string includes the name of the VI that produced the error, what inputs are in error, and how to eliminate the error.

instrument handle out passes a reference to your instrument session to the next VI. instrument handle is obtained from the niHSDIO Init Acquisition Session VI or the niHSDIO Init Generation Session VI.

status is TRUE (X) if an error occurred or FALSE (checkmark) to indicate a warning or that no error occurred.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/370520P-01/ii32.gif

code is the error or warning code. If status is TRUE, code is a nonzero error code. If status is FALSE, code is 0 or a warning code.
