TriggerSource

Indicate hardware source to monitor for trigger conditions

Description

The TriggerSource property indicates the hardware source the image acquisition object monitors for trigger conditions. When the condition specified in the TriggerCondition property is met, the object executes the trigger and starts acquiring data.

You use the triggerconfig function to specify this value. The value of the TriggerSource property is device specific. You specify whatever mechanism a particular device uses to generate triggers.

For example, for Matrox® hardware, the TriggerSource property could have values such as 'Port0' or 'Port1'. Use the triggerinfo function to view a list of values that are valid for your image acquisition device.

You must use the triggerconfig function to set the value of this property.

    Note   The TriggerSource property is only used when the TriggerType property is set to 'hardware'.
