Pico 5000 DLL definitions

Postby PCBarnett » Sat Jun 09, 2007 6:36 am

I was told that the support documentation with examples for programming the 5000 was due for release and would be available in a couple of weeks. The couple of weeks have gone. Is there any sign of it yet ?

We bought a PICO 5203. The advertisement of the PICO technology announced that the drivers of PICO 5203 cover the Visual Basic.
http://press.picotech.com/pr/en/picoscope5000-api.html
However, ps5000sdk_r6_0_12 does not include any Visual Basic sample programs and header files for the library functions. Does this mean that we cannot use the Visual Basic for the control of PICO5203 or that you are preparing them and supply them soon?
The table of "Full List of Drivers and Examples" in http://www.picotech.com/drivers.html indicates that only PICO 520x does not have any VB sample programs. This table correctly reflects the situation of the driver soft ps5000sdk_r6_0_12. Then, does your press announce have a mistake? Why do you not supply the VB samples only for PICO520x? Do the library functions for PICO520x have some problems for the usage in th Visual Basic? PICO 320x has almost same types of API functions as PICO520x and you supply the VB sample programs for PICO 320x. What happend to the PICO 520x drivers? Just now we are going to make Visula Basic programs for the controll of PICO 520x by ourselves modifying the PICO 3204 VB programing examples. Is this attempt impossible and will be failed?

Hi Yutaka thank you for your post.

The drivers will work however we currently have no examples. We are currently working on a Visual Basic Example, which will be out very soon hopefully early January, if not earlier. So keep your eye out for an announcement.

Kind regards

Hi the VB examples should ship with the next release of the software which is expected early in the New Year.

I've attached some examples that will be useful to VB developers: An excel example which demonstrates use of the driver in VB6 and a C# example which demonstrates the use in .Net (which is useful for VB.Net developers).

(You will need to download the latest PS5000 driver dll from the usual downloads page).

We need triger control examples of VB (or VBA)

Postby Yutaka Matsumi » Sat Jun 07, 2008 12:00 am

The VB example file (Excel VBA) does not contain trigger control routines. Could you add the trigger control examples?

Best regards
