Get SRQ with a signal trigger

I have the DPO5034 oscilloscope in "Normal" trigger mode and sometimes a signal triggers. How can I get an event over the gpib-bus with VISA?
I only found examples for the measure complete event (*OPC?), but internal triggers are not registered?
Regards
Chris

Hi christoph33,

Your best bet for doing this would be to look in the Programmer's Manual for your scope. You can download a copy from the following URL.

Specifically you'll want to look at the Status and Events section of the manual which starts on page 1221 of the PDF linked above. This section provides the information you need to configure the status model to generate a service request.

please note that the operation complete bit is only set with single shot acquisitions. SRQ will not occur if the operation complete bit does not get set.
