34980A External Trigger Event thru Vee

Has anyone successfully caputered a Trigger event in VEE from the external trigger function on the 34980A?  As far as I can tell there is not an actual event created in the drivers or software.

Currently we have an external trigger wired up directly to the 34980A.  In VEE I can configure the reading trigger to wait for the external trigger (as long as it doesn't timeout, which is most of the time).  If I use the Agilent Benchlink software I can get the readings to trigger based on the external trigger (w/ 34980A controlling readings) with no timeouts.

What I would like is to have that external trigger on the 34980A trigger some software event so I can react to the button push using the VEE software so I can have it do some specialized tasks...

Anyone ever had this work?
