E8257D Frequency Step programming

Question asked by cmelo258 on Sep 8, 2011

Is there a way to visually see in the instrument screen the setting for Frequency Step Scaling (either Linear or Logarithmic)?  I am using the Agilent RFSigGen driver and command AgRfSigGen_ConfigureFrequencyStepStartStop.  I can see the Start & Stop frequencies and (after calculating the step points) the StepSize.  How do I see that the Scaling value has changed?

I press the Sweep key on the front of the instrument and can readily see everything, but I am not sure where to find the Scaling parameter.

Thanks in advance!


ViStatus _VI_FUNC  AgRfSigGen_ConfigureFrequencyStepStartStop ( ViSession Vi, ViReal64 Start, ViReal64 Stop, ViInt32 Scaling, ViReal64 StepSize );
