Short Name: Driver Setup

Property of niDCPower

Indicates the Driver Setup string that you specified when initializing the driver.

Some cases exist where you must specify the instrument driver options at initialization time. An example of this case is specifying a particular instrument model from among a family of instruments that the driver supports. This property is useful when simulating a device. You can specify the driver-specific options through the Driver Setup keyword in the options string parameter in the niDCPower Initialize with Options VI or through the IVI Configuration Utility.

If you do not specify a Driver Setup string, this property returns an empty string.
