Field Value

The type of device for which the Chooser will select a driver. (String, default = "Telescope")

Return Value

The device type that has been set

Remarks

This property changes the "personality" of the Chooser, allowing it to be used to select a driver for any arbitrary ASCOM device type. The default value for this is "Telescope", but it could be "Focuser", "Camera", etc.

This property is independent of the Profile object's DeviceType property. Setting Chooser's DeviceType property doesn't set the DeviceType property in Profile, you must set that also when needed.
