AutoTrigger and CallBackBlock function

Postby Jay H » Mon Apr 12, 2010 8:12 pm

I'm trying to see if it is possible to determine whether my Trigger has been set or the AutoTrigger timeout was reached (as setup by the call to ps5000SetTriggerChannelProperties?

I believe the ps5000RunBlock will eventually call my CALLBACK function if the Trigger isn't hit and my CALLBACK sub will cause the BlockDataHandler to abort the loop and start sending data, so I would imagine if this is possible, I should be able to put something in my CALLBACK sub/function to see if the Trigger was hit or the AutoTrigger was reached. How would I do this, I tried to see if there is a Status (of type PICO_STATUS) that is returned but didn't find any. Is this possible, and if so, how?

Hi Jay

Unfortunately, it's not possible to tell whether the unit has autotriggered or triggered on a trigger condition.

Status is used only to report errors.
