From the LabVIEW examples under Imaging Control Extension I have tried running the Trigger.vi and the Trigger IMAQ.vi They both run perfectly well in the following sequence:

1. Setup the camera
2. Enable Trigger
3. Click Grab
4. Provide External Trigger
5. We get an Image.

However, If after step 3, that is, after clicking the Grab Button, If I don't want to provide any more external triggers and close the program, how can I Timeout the MemorySnapImage method?

There is a property "MemorySnapTimeout" that can be set to a value in ms. The default is -1, that means unlimited waiting.
