PXI6070E set occurrence on counter output

I have an application where I would like to set an occurrence when the
output of one of my general purpose counters changes state (I don't
care which state) on my PXI-6070E. Is this possible?

I know you can set occurrences with the DAQ occurrence VI, and I've
successfully done it with analog acquisitions, but I really need to do
it with the counter.

I was able to accomplish what your talking about using an e series board,
I think. I set up the counter as in the generate continuos pulse train example,
and then added a Get Attribute in the loop and monitored the output state.
I used a shift register to tell if the current state equalled the previous
state, when false I generated an occurence in a case structure. In a separate
loop I waited on the occurence and turned a boolean on and off with each
transition of the counter. I hope this what you were talking about.
