VISA read also reads carriage return



I am using visa-read block to read some RS-232 connection.


whenever i send a message through VISA-WRITE, i read back the "Carriage-return"

for example, i send:

<some command>


i recieve:

;<some respond>;


if i send out several lines i get the same number of <CR> in return. i cant get rid of it.



could you help.

thank you.

Hi moranEng,


This sounds like expected behavior to me for our VISA-WRITE and VISA-READ VIs. 


Can you explain what problems this is currently causing by reading the carriage-return as well?


Additionally, here is a link to a tutorial page we have regarding Termination Characters in NI-VISA.
