Examples

Create a session object, add counter input channel, and change the InitialCount.

s = daq.createSession('ni');
ch = addCounterInputChannel(s,'cDAQ1Mod5', 0, 'EdgeCount')
ch = 

Data acquisition counter input edge count channel 'ctr0' on device 'cDAQ1Mod5':

      ActiveEdge: Rising
  CountDirection: Increment
    InitialCount: 0
        Terminal: 'PFI8'
            Name: empty
              ID: 'ctr0'
          Device: [1x1 daq.ni.DeviceInfo]
 MeasurementType: 'EdgeCount'

Change InitalCount to 15:

ch.InitialCount = 15

ch = 

Data acquisition counter input edge count channel 'ctr0' on device 'cDAQ1Mod5':

      ActiveEdge: Rising
   CountDirection: Increment
    InitialCount: 15
        Terminal: 'PFI8'
            Name: empty
              ID: 'ctr0'
          Device: [1x1 daq.ni.DeviceInfo]
 MeasurementType: 'EdgeCount'
