Automation of Pico setup including masks and mesurements

Post by jimTFX » Mon May 18, 2020 9:50 am

I have been attempting to automate the setup procedure and apply masks and measurements. This for performing multiple test using the PICO 2000B series.
The set up pro such as time base and V/div was setup using the macro functions the issue lies with the setup of visual aids such as the masks and auto measurements. I have seen on other posts that this can't be done using the basic on bored Macro function and have to be applied by the operator. due to the number of test that must be accurately performed the chance of human error choosing the wrong mask must be removed.
I have looked at using the DLL's (dynamic link libraries) to automate this function but their is no mention of using mask's or measurements in the API programmers guide. Am i being daft and missing something? has anyone had any look with achieving something similar? TIA
