Owning Palette: Data Type Parsing VIs
Requires: Base Development System
Returns the tag data type stored in Variant. This VI only accepts variants that contain a tag.
A tag is a data type for system resources and is similar to a refnum. A tag is allocated in a static manner when a VI begins execution, while a refnum is dynamically allocated. One example of a tag is a DAQmx Device Name.
|Note The tag data type is installed with some add-ons, such as NI-DAQmx.|
|Variant specifies the variant data from which you want to retrieve data type information.|
|error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.|
|Tag Type returns the tag data type. For example, a DAQmx Device Name returns a tag type of kDAQmxDeviceTagType.|
|error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
