IKeithleyDMM6500Display Question

Post by chevyvolt1 » March 12th, 2021, 5:06 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to "minimize" (or hide) the swipe screen on the bottom half of the display using the IKeithleyDMM6500Display class.When I did something like this:

Code: Select all

IKeithleyDMM6500Display display = _dmm.Display;
display.ScreenName = KeithleyDMM6500DisplayScreenNameEnum.KeithleyDMM6500DisplayScreenNameHomeLargeReading;
The DAQ displayed this:
Error 1135
Parameter 1, Syntax Error, expected valid name parameter

No additional information available.


I then changed the enum from LargeReading to KeithleyDMM6500DisplayScreenNameHome. That didn't trigger an error. Several enums triggered the same error.

BTW, I downloaded the latest drivers from the product's page, to no avail.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm back.

Maybe it's easier to show using -.

The first - is what we see initially. We'd like to be able to programmatically hide the bottom half, see second -. Is there a way to do this via code?

Hi,

Thank you for the reply. I'm using C#, not SCPI commands, to communicate with the instrument, but I could change the code to use SCPI commands instead. It is as I said in my original post, I used --

IKeithleyDMM6500Display display = _dmm.Display;
display.ScreenName = KeithleyDMM6500DisplayScreenNameEnum.KeithleyDMM6500DisplayScreenNameHomeLargeReading

because that was what was available. See screenshot below.

That triggered an error.
