Automation API- 'Start capture' on pre-existing session


M

I'd like a way to trigger a 'start' command in the app through the API, without changing the session settings.

I often use the Saleae logic analyzer for interactively debugging a program. The original API was great for this because I could manually tweak settings in the app, run a script that triggers a capture using the existing session settings, then view the results directly in the app, and rapidly iterate with different settings. With the new API, there doesn't appear to be a way to attach to an existing session, and the capture configurations are not geared towards the GUI. For instance, names cannot be assigned to a channel, and graph size/zoom cannot be set. It would be great if there was a way to just start a capture with the current session settings, like in the old API.

"I didn't know if there was an API call I was missing that would allow me to attach to an existing session, configure the logic analyzer as required, start the recording and then detach from the session without closing it."
