Description

When working with the session-based interface, use the InitialDelay property to set an initial delay on the counter output channel in which the counter is running but does not generate any pulse.

Example

Specify Initial Delay

Set the initial delay on a counter output channel to 3.

Create a session and add a counter input channel.

s=daq.createSession('ni');
ch=addCounterOutputChannel(s,'cDAQ1Mod5', 'ctr0', 'PulseGeneration');

Set the initial delay.

ch.InitialDelay=3
ch =
