Continuous background scan status



I am using mcculw in python to read analog inputs from a USB-2416-4AO. I call a_in_scan along with initalizing my class variables in function1() and later I want to access the data array in a different function, function2() within the same class. I am not able to call ul.get_status() for the background scan in function2(), and get Error 1026: Board number already in use. Is there a work around to this so I don't have to do everything in the same function?

It should be possible start an a_in_scan BACKGROUND|CONTINUOUS acquisition in function1 and then call ul.GetStatus(board_number, FunctionType.AIFUNCTION) in function2. Perhaps you could post or attach the class code if it's not too big.

Best regards,
