Software triggered single Pulse Generation

Hi,
I have an AT-MIO-16E10 board and I am trying to generate multiple but
finite digital pulses without having to reset, configure and rearm the
counter for every pulse. This takes too much time for my application. I
would like to configure just once the counter and gate it by any
software method. I am using LabWindows/CVI.
Does anybody know if it is possible to rearm the counter without having
to reset and configure it previously?.
Does anybody know how to generate a software trigger?

Thanks

Manolo

Hi Manuel,
Configure your counter for retriggerable pulse generation, and connect
one of the digital lines to the counter gate. Toggle the digital line each
time you want to generate a pulse. See GPCTR_Set_Application(),
application = ND_REGRIG_PULSE_GNR in the NI-DAQ Function Reference
Manual for details. Please feel free to email me if you need more help.
Regards,
Reed.
