This listbox enables you to choose if you want to simulate instrument driver I/O operations. Simulation allows you to develop and use application code even when the instrument is not available.
If you choose to simulate with a specific driver, the specific driver functions do not perform instrument I/O. Instead, the specific driver functions return random simulated values for output parameters that represent instrument data. If you choose to simulate with a class simulation driver, select the simulation driver that matches the class of your specific driver. The simulation driver extends the simulation capabilities built into all specific drivers and allows you to configure the nature of the simulated instrument data interactively.
