Short Name: Driver Setup

Property of niSwitch

Contains the Driver Setup string that you specified when initializing the instrument driver.

In some cases, you must specify instrument driver options at initialization time—for example, when specifying a particular instrument model from among a family of instruments that the instrument driver supports. This is useful when using simulation.

You can specify instrument driver-specific options through the DriverSetup keyword in the option string parameter of the niSwitch Initialize With Options VI, or through the IVI Configuration Utility. If you did not specify a Driver Setup string, this property returns an empty string.
