Hi,
older post was in the wrong sections
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.

Thanks,
Jayanth
