vrf Reading from National Instruments DataSockets using ActiveX

Question asked by VRFuser on Feb 3, 2006
Does anyone have an example illustrating how to read from a National Instruments DataSocket using VEE?
 
More than a year ago an Agilent rep e-mailed me an example program called OPC_client.vee which illustrates the use of an ActiveX control that connects to an NI OPC server.  It appears that the example program only connects to the server and displays status; it doesn't read any data.  (I no longer have or can recall the Agilent rep's name).
 
I was able to modify the example to connect to an NI DataSocket (using the dstp:// URL syntax).  However, it is not obvious how you go about reading data from a DataSocket.  Can anyone help?
 
Info on DataSockets can be found at http://www.ni.com/datasocket/ds_what.htm.  DataSockets are part of NI's LabVIEW.  The DataSocket ActiveX controls are part of NI's Measurement Studio.
