instrcallback

Display event information when event occurs

Syntax

instrcallback(obj, event)

Arguments

obj

An instrument object.

event

The event that caused the callback to execute.

Description

instrcallback(obj, event) displays a message that contains the event type, the time the event occurred, and the name of the instrument object that caused the event to occur.

For error events, the error message is also displayed. For pin status events, the pin that changed value and its value are also displayed. For trigger events, the trigger line is also displayed. For datagram received events, the number of bytes received and the datagram address and port are also displayed.

    Note:   Using this callback for numbers greater than 127 with a terminator is not supported.

Examples

The following example creates the serial port objects s on a Windows® machine, and configures s to execute instrcallback when an output-empty event occurs. The event occurs after the *IDN? command is written to the instrument.

s = serial('COM1');
set(s,'OutputEmptyFcn',@instrcallback)
fopen(s)
fprintf(s,'*IDN?','async')

The resulting display from instrcallback is shown below.

OutputEmpty event occurred at 08:37:49 for the object: Serial-COM1

Read the identification information from the input buffer and end the serial port session.

idn = fscanf(s);
fclose(s)
delete(s)
clear s
