Open graphical tool for creating and editing MATLAB instrument driver
The name of a MATLAB® instrument driver.
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.
MIDEDIT is unable to open MDDs with non-ascii characters either in their name or path on Mac platforms.
