Valid values

DAQmx_Val_WaitForInterrupt 12523 Check for Sample Clock pulses when the system receives an interrupt service request. This mode is the most CPU efficient, but results in lower possible sampling rates.
DAQmx_Val_Poll 12524 Repeatedly check for Sample Clock pulses as fast as possible. This mode allows for the highest sampling rates at the expense of CPU efficiency.



You can get/set/reset this property using:

  DAQmxGetRealTimeWaitForNextSampClkWaitMode

  DAQmxSetRealTimeWaitForNextSampClkWaitMode

  DAQmxResetRealTimeWaitForNextSampClkWaitMode
