Short Name: Arbitrary Waveform Handle

Property of niFgen

Selects which arbitrary waveform the signal generator produces. You can create multiple arbitrary waveforms using the niFgen Create Waveform VI.

The niFgen Create Waveform VI, niFgen Allocate Waveform VI, and similar VIs return a Waveform Handle that you use to identify the particular waveform. To configure the signal generator to produce a particular waveform, set this property to the Waveform Handle value.

Use this property only when the Output Mode property is set to NIFGEN_VAL_OUTPUT_ARB.

Note  You cannot change this property while the device is generating a waveform. If you want to change the device configuration, call the niFgen Abort Generation VI or wait for the generation to complete.


The following table lists the characteristics of this property.
