I am currently using E7402A and E4411B analyzers controlled via GPIB and NI LabVIEW 8.5. I can download the binary state files just fine, but what I would like to be able to do is allow the user to select a state, preview some of the settings in that state and then decide whether or not to load it. I realize that I could do this by loading the state and then querying the settings I want the user to see, but that's not ideal. What I've come up with is when the user selects the state, it is downloaded to the PC, the desired settings are read from that file and displayed to the user. Unfortunately, I can't interpret the state file in it's binary format. Can anyone help me out or at least point me in the right direction? Thanks.
