ISession Properties

state

readonly state: ${Session.State};
// This property is not available in managed environment
// This property is not available in native environment

Returns current session state.

precise

precise: boolean;
// This property is not available in managed environment
// This property is not available in native environment

Returns or sets current session's precise timing mode. Timing mode may only be changed before the session is started.

visualizers

readonly visualizers: ${IVisualizer}[];
// This property is not available in managed environment
// This property is not available in native environment

Returns an array of references to data visualizer objects.

WARNING

Note that each time you query this property, a new object is created for each data visualizer. This means that expression session.visualizers[0] === session.visualizers[0] will never be true. Use the IVisualizer.equals method to test whether two references describe the same object.

ISession Methods
