PicoScope 9300 Programmer's Guide Questions

Post by robert1 »

I am using a PicoScope 9300 and have a couple of questions on the Programmer's Guide.

The following commands are listed in the Programmer's Guide, but I receive a return value of "ERROR" from ExecCommand.

ExecCommand("Gui Invisible")

I am able to successfully execute the other commands from the Programmer's Guide, so I know the COM object is working correctly.

Also, the Programmer's Guide does not elaborate on the 'Gui' command. I would like to control the PicoScope from a custom application--and not have the PicoSample3 application visible. It appears that when a PicoSample3 COM object is created, the PicoSample3 executable is launched. Is there a way to have this happen in the background? I'm hoping that this is what the Gui command ("Gui Invisible") does, but I have not been able to verify this yet.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for posting your questions with regard to the Invisible and ExecSave commands listed in the current PicoScope 9300 programmers guide.


Following on from your request I have tested these through and confirm that these functions are currently not active. To this end I will raise the relevant reports with the 9300 PicoSample software developers and make sure that this is resolved in a timely manner.

In the meantime please could you mail support@picotech.com and I will then ensure we get this resolved.

Kindest regards,

Stuart Murlis
