Objects of the Step class represent steps in TestStand sequences. A step can perform many tasks, such as initializing an instrument, performing a complex test, or making a decision that affects the flow of execution in a sequence. You can obtain a reference to a step in a sequence by calling the Sequence.GetStep method. Create new steps with the Engine.NewStep method.

Note  Built-in properties of steps are flagged to be shared at run-time. Any changes to built-in properties within the run-time copy of the step edits the original step object in the sequence file.
