midedit

Open graphical tool for creating and editing MATLAB instrument driver

Syntax

midedit
midedit('driver')

Arguments

'driver'

The name of a MATLAB® instrument driver.

Description

midedit opens the MATLAB Instrument Driver Editor, which is a graphical tool for creating and editing instrument drivers.

midedit('driver') opens the MATLAB Instrument Driver Editor for the specified instrument driver. The default extension for driver is .mdd. Note that driver can include a relative partial pathname.

The editor consists of two main parts: the navigation pane and the detail pane. The navigation pane lists the driver-specific properties and functions in a tree view, while the detail pane allows you to configure and document the properties and functions.

midedit may also be used to import VXIplug&play or IVI® drivers. With midedit open, select Import from the File menu. The import process creates a new MATLAB Instrument Driver based on the VXIplug&play or IVI driver. This allows you to customize the behavior of device objects that use the VXIplug&play or IVI driver.

For details and examples on the MATLAB Instrument Driver Editor, see MATLAB Instrument Driver Editor Overview.
