set_trigger in VB6

Postby PierLuc » Mon Oct 10, 2011 1:20 am


I have a PS3205 and I am trying to set trigger on my external channel. I use the code sample provided by picotech and I change the following line:

ok = ps3000_set_trigger(ps3000_handle, 5, 500, 0, 0, 0)

No mater what is the 3rd parameter, the scope always start getting data even if there is no trigger signal on my probe. What should I do

The channel enumeration used by the driver is

Code: Select all
typedef enum enPS3000Channel
}   PS3000_CHANNEL;

You will need to make sure that you select 4, not 5, for the second parameter to trigger from the external channel.
