DAQmxBaseWriteAnalogF64

int32 DAQmxBaseWriteAnalogF64 (TaskHandle taskHandle, int32 numSampsPerChan, bool32 autoStart, float64 timeout, bool32 dataLayout, float64 writeArray[ ], int32 *sampsPerChanWritten, bool32 *reserved);

Purpose

Writes multiple floating-point samples to a task that contains one or more analog output channels.

Note Buffered writes require a minimum buffer size of two samples.

Parameters

Input
Name Type Description
taskHandle TaskHandle The task to write samples to.
numSampsPerChan int32 The number of samples, per channel, to write. You must pass in a value of 0 or more in order for the sample to write. If you pass a negative number, this function returns an error.
autoStart bool32 Always set to FALSE.
timeout float64 The amount of time, in seconds, to wait for this function to write all the samples. This function returns an error if the timeout elapses.

dataLayout bool32 Specifies how the samples are arranged, either interleaved or non-interleaved.
Value Description
DAQmx_Val_GroupByChannel Group by channel (non-interleaved)
DAQmx_Val_GroupByScanNumber Group by sample (interleaved)
writeArray float64[ ] The array of 64-bit samples to write to the task.
reserved bool32 * Reserved for future use. Pass NULL to this parameter.
Output
Name Type Description
sampsPerChanWritten int32 * The actual number of samples per channel successfully written to the buffer.

Return Value

Name Type Description
status int32 The error code returned by the function in the event of an error or warning. A value of 0 indicates success. A positive value indicates a warning. A negative value indicates an error.
