Configures the specified device to respond to parallel polls by asserting or not asserting the GPIB data line.

Namespace: NationalInstruments.NI4882

Assembly: NationalInstruments.NI4882 (in NationalInstruments.NI4882.dll) Version:


Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Sub ParallelPollConfigure ( _
	address As Address, _
	dataLine As Integer, _
	lineSense As Integer _

public void ParallelPollConfigure(
	Address address,
	int dataLine,
	int lineSense


Type: NationalInstruments.NI4882.Address
Address of the device to be configured.
Type: System.Int32
Data line (a value in the range of 1 to 8) on which the device responds to parallel polls.
Type: System.Int32
Sense (either 0 or 1) of the parallel poll response.


GpibException The NI-488.2 driver returns an error as a result of calling this method.

The address parameter is invalid.


dataLine is not in the range 1 to 8.


lineSense is not 0 or 1.

DllNotFoundException The NI-488.2 driver library cannot be found.
EntryPointNotFoundException A required operation in the NI-488.2 driver library cannot be found.

The inner exception is set to the GpibException due to one of the following conditions:

A different process owns a lock for the interface.


Nonexistent GPIB interface.


Asynchronous I/O operation in progress.


The interface board is not Controller-In-Charge.


DMA error.


GPIB bus error.

ObjectDisposedException This member is called after the Dispose method has been called directly from your code or indirectly through a finalizer.


If lineSense equals the individual status (IST) bit of the device, the assigned GPIB dataLine is asserted during a parallel poll. Otherwise, the dataLine is not asserted during a parallel poll. The Controller can use parallel polling to obtain 1-bit, device-dependent status messages from up to eight devices simultaneously.

For more information about parallel polling, refer to the Parallel Polling Overview in the NI-488.2 User Manual.
