Configuring a Logical Name
Logical names allow you to define and name multiple driver sessions. You can switch between driver sessions by passing a logical name to the initialize function of a class driver, which identifies the software module and hardware asset to use (example: "SampleDmm"). Application programs written using a class driver use logical names to avoid direct references to software modules and hardware assets.
To configure the properties of a new logical name or to modify an existing logical name, complete the following steps:
- Click the appropriate logical name in the MAX configuration tree.
- Select a driver session from the Driver Session listbox.
- Enter the description you want to use for the logical name in the Description field.
- Click Save IVI Configuration at the top of the configuration view to save the new logical name configuration. If you decide not to save your changes, click Revert to revert to the previous configuration.
