Wait instrcution timeout

Hello,

 

I'm using PXI6552 with scripting. I use the wait instrcution with scripttrigger (Digital edge).

I would like to know if there is a possibility to configure a timeout for the Wait instruction because in the case the trigger never happen, I don't want to block my script 

 

Thank you

Re : Wait instrcution timeout

Hi JPV,

 

Thank for using National Instruments discussion forums.

If you have questions about scripting,please refer to the API Community: LabVIEW Scripting Main Board. I think you will get the best help there.

Re : Wait instrcution timeout

Hello,

 

My question is not about LabVIEW scripting but about HSDIO scripting, so I'm not sure The API Community: LabVIEW Scripting Main Board is the right place to post my question.

could you confirm?

 

Thank you

Re : Wait instruction timeout

Hi JPV,

 

You can configure the niHSDIO Wait Until Done VI or C function to give your script a programmatic timeout parameter, which will cause your program to error and exit gracefully in the event that a hardware script trigger is not detected within the timeout period specified by your code.  I hope this helps!
