Is there any scripting for recording data for more than 3 measuring blocks? Something like request blocks 1,2,3 then 4,5,6 then back to 1,2,3 and repeat?

I understand the sample rates would be quite slow but that's ok.

Thanks

Have you tried advanced measuring blocks?

Hi there,

accessing measuring values as a whole is not (yet) possible via VCDScripter as I'm lacking practical examples where this could be useful and what should be done with these values...

What do you want to do exactly?

My usage is pretty niche to be honest!

I have a car (Mk5 Golf so old TP2.0 / Measuring Block protocol rather than UDS) running on a dyno for an extended period of time. At the moment I'm recording 3 blocks to see how they change over time, but I'd like to record more if possible. It doesn't matter that the sample rate reduces as I'm looking at changes over a long period of time.

Ideally I'd like it to cycle through the blocks periodically and save to CSV, although if it just cycled through the blocks then I could probably work with it as the messages would appear on the CAN BUS and I can probably pick out the values from there (I'm also logging data from the Powertrain CAN).

Hope that makes sense.

I'm afraid I do not understand why recording measurement data via VCDS itself does not suffice your needs?

For the moment I have not planned to support measurement data via VCDScripter. Motivation is generally driven by need.... ;)

Because it's limited to 3 blocks (or 12 advanced values) and I ideally need to record more than that. I could switch between blocks manually but this would get quite tedious when it's running for hours on end.

If you had a current cable, you could just make MVB maps, and I doubt it would be difficult to script that too loop it. Then it would repeatedly record all the measuring blocks from the ECU.

That's a good idea, that would work.
