The custom code task allows for custom code to be created and executed by XIA Automation Server. Unlike the plugin task custom code is written internally using the XIA Automation Server tools rather than an external development environment such as Visual Studio and is compiled when the automation profile is executed.


  This section assumes you are proficient in .NET development.
