Hi,
I am new to programming in VEE. I am trying to capture the screenshot of the Tektronics TDS 784C.
I am using the following commands

HARDCOPY:FORMAT BMPC
HARDCOPY:LAYOUT LANDSCAPE
HARDCOPY:PORT GPIB
HARDCOPY START
READ BINBLOCK X BYTE ARRAY.*

I am trying to save the returned data inta a file named image.bmp using TO FILE
       
WRITE BYTE A


The scope is trying to hardcopy, but is getting stuck in the process. please let me know where i am going wrong.


by direct i/o setting for the scope are

BYTE order        MSB
Conformance     IEEE 488
Binblock            None
Read terminator \n
EOL sequency    \n
Multi fields         data only
Array format     block

Please help me.

Jayanth
