How can I control Timer/Conter input of an NI DAQ Pad-6259 by using the data acquisition toolbox ?

I Want to meassure the frequency of a rectangular binary signal with a counter input of an NI DAQ Pad-6259. I tried the way described in the matlab help. Here is the example.
s = daq.createSession('ni'); s.addCounterInputChannel('cDAQ1Mod5', 'ctr0', 'Frequency') s.inputSingleScan
if I do this, the method "inputSingleScan()" returns NaN.

It seems that your code is correct. I would double check your hardware setup.
1. Is your signal connected to the correct terminal. You can find the correct terminal by executing
2. What is the amplitude of your signal. Make sure amplitude is high enough for your counter to detect it.
3. Are you getting the correct frequency using National Instruments MAX?
Hope this helps,
