ps500aWrap.dll Documentation

Post by ArtistUSA »

The document I am currently working from is:
ps5000pg-en-1.pdf
I am looking at "PicoScope5000aWrapSettings.vi". This contains calls to functions within "ps500aWrap.dll" that I do not see in that pdf. Functions such as "setChannelCount-2". In what document are the functions within "ps500aWrap.dll" documented?

They are documented in the programmers guide-
https://www.picotech.com/download/manua ... -guide.pdf
On page 135 - 4.81 Wrapper functions
The C header file for the wrapper will be installed with the other SDK header files-
32-bit on 64-bit OS-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\SDK\inc\ps5000aWrap.h
64-bit-
C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\SDK\inc\ps5000aWrap.h

Which is maybe useful you need to setup a new function and/or check variables names and data types used.

Also the full C code for ps5000a wrapper is here if need it-
https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-w ... 000aWrap.c
Most functions are well commented.

Any functions ending with "-2" are not to used these related to dll compatibility.
