online analysis on background data, ni card analog input

I am trying to get access to a global variable that is updated in the listener function of a ''DataAvialable'' event, relating to the startbackground for NI card analog input.
It seems that neigther a global variable nor the "UserData" of the daq session object are not updated before stoping the background recording. Is there any way around this to get online access to a variable that is updated in the listener function while the recording is still running?

When the session's "UserData" variable is updated in the "DataAvailable" event callback, the result is immediately accessible from the workspace.
By setting up the listener as follows,
s1 = daq.createSession('ni');
s1.addAnalogOutputChannel('Dev1','ao1', 'Voltage');
s2 = daq.createSession('ni');
ch = s2.addAnalogInputChannel('Dev1','ai1', 'Voltage');
ch.TerminalConfig = 'SingleEnded';
s2.DurationInSeconds = 60;
lh = addlistener(s2, 'DataAvailable', @dataAvailableCallback);
function dataAvailableCallback(src, event)
src.UserData = [src.UserData; event.Data];
you may access the live "UserData" while the acquisition continues in the background:
>> s2.UserData(end)

this doesn't work in the continuous mode.
s2.IsContinunous = true;
