Provides access to the specific TCP/IP functionality for accessing VXI-11 instruments available in VISA.

Namespace: NationalInstruments.VisaNS

Assembly: NationalInstruments.VisaNS (in NationalInstruments.VisaNS.dll) Version:


Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Class TcpipSession _
	Inherits MessageBasedSession

public class TcpipSession : MessageBasedSession


Use this class to open a VISA session to a TCPIP INSTR resource type when you need specific functionality for VXI-11 instruments that is unavailable in MessageBasedSession. For code interchangeability purposes, avoid instantiating this class directly. Instead, use the Open method.
Note: In the .NET interface to NI-VISA, a VISA session opens when Session or one of its subclasses is instantiated. A VISA session closes when Session or one of its subclasses is disposed by calling the Dispose method. Ensure that you call Dispose when you are finished with a session.
