Pollpico in ps400

Post by interact » Fri Feb 22, 2019 4:06 pm


Using visual studio C#.

I'm porting some software that used PS2000AImports with a 2000 series oscilloscope to use the 4262. So I've been changing all the functions to fit PS4000AImports (A) without much trouble as most of the functions and semantics is the same.

I have however ran into one issue I can't seem to overcome.

The PS2000 code used the supported function 'PollPico' which isn't available in the 4000 api. So i've been looking around to see what is a suitable replacement. I have found in the 4000 programmers guide the function PS4000IsReady, that should behave the same way - but inside PS4000AImports.cs this function does not exist.

What should i do?

Checking the previous programmers comments i can see they're using PollPico to "poll the picoscope to see if data has been acquired. Also repeats run segment if more segments are required"

Hi interact,

We had a telephone conversation regarding this. Did you manage to get the substitution working?
