Get Command-Line Help

To access command-line help for Data Acquisition Toolbox™, type:

help daq



The Command Window displays links for the functions of the DataAcquisition interface.

To access command-line help for a particular function, type:

daqhelp function_name

For example,

daqhelp readwrite

You can get help on individual properties of the toolbox objects. For example, to see help on the Channels property of a DataAcquisition object, type:

help daq.interfaces.DataAcquisition.Channels

It can be easier to get function and property help if the object exists in the workspace. For example,

d = daq("ni");
help d.Rate
help d.addinput
