Variables Pane

The Variables pane displays all the variables and properties the selected sequence can access at run time. Use the Variables pane context menu to add and delete variables and properties and to examine and modify the values of these variables and properties. In the TestStand Sequence Editor, you can drag individual variables or properties from the Variables pane to expression controls on the tabs on the Step Settings pane.

The Variables pane sequence context contains the following variables and properties:

  • Locals Section—The local variables for the selected sequence.
  • Parameters Section—The parameters the selected sequence accepts when called.
  • File Globals Section—Displays the global variables for the selected file.
  • Station Globals Section—The global variables for the station.
  • ThisContext Section—A reference to the current sequence context. Use this variable to pass the entire sequence context as an argument to a subsequence or to a code module.
  • RunState Section—Displays example subproperties when the selected step executes.
  • Step Section—The subproperties of the selected step.

You can sort the contents of the Variables pane. Click any column header to sort the view by the values of that column in increasing order. Click the column header again to sort the values in decreasing order. Click the column header a third time to restore the values to the unsorted order.

Note Note  TestStand does not sort array elements or parameters on the Variables pane.
