Get Datatype fromTDMS

Hi all,


If I have a Channel name and the Group Name in a tdms file, is it possible to get the Datatype of a particular Channel?

Hi g_sures,


It's possible. You can view the TDMS in LabVIEW by using TDMS File Viewer in Programming -> File I/O -> TDM Streaming, when you view the channel in the viewer, it can display a property "NI_DataType" and this is the data type of the channel. You can also programming in LabVIEW by using TDMS Get Properties to get the value of this property in your code.
