Short Name: Query Instrument Status

Property of niFgen

Specifies whether NI-FGEN retains instrument status after each operation. Set this property to TRUE to query the instrument status.

Querying the instrument status is very useful for debugging. After you validate your program, you can set this property to FALSE to disable status checking and maximize performance. However, the effect on NI-FGEN is minor.

NI-FGEN can choose to ignore status checking for particular properties regardless of the setting of this property. Use the niFgen Initialize With Options VI to override this value.

Default Value: TRUE
