The NI VeriStand Macro Recorder and Macro Player are tools you can add to the Tools menu of the Workspace window. These tools enable you to record and playback commands NI VeriStand sends to the target while a project runs.
The Macro Recorder tool records the commands NI VeriStand sends to the target while a project runs. Commands can include the setting of channel or parameter values, the setting of the model execution state, and the setting of fault or alarm values. The Macro Recorder tool creates a macro (.nivsmacro) file, which you can play back using the Macro Player tool.
The Macro Player tool plays back a macro file you record using the Macro Recorder. You can play back the file at the speed it was recorded or, if you only want to review the list of commands, as fast as the processor allows.
If you are using LabVIEW to program NI VeriStand, you can use the Macro Recorder and Macro Player VIs to access the macro tools on the VeriStand Gateway. You also can use the Execution API to access the tools from any .NET-compatible programming language or environment.
