Logging A Text String


Recommended Posts


I am communicating with an instrument (device name t500u) using a serial link and using the 'poll' command to get data. But I would like to be able to log text strings of the instrument status. Currently in a sequence I send the command:


private string datain = device.t500u.Poll("V MODE" + chr(013),13)


and it returns the line (viewed in the comm monitor):


 V  147:14:05  0000  SAMPLE\013\010


I would like to be able to get the string SAMPLE into a channel that I can log alongside my data. SAMPLE could also be CAL, ZERO or AREF depending on the instrument status.


Any help would be much appreciated!
