Refer to the NI TestStand API Reference Poster for an illustration of TestStand API inheritance.
The Engine class is the only class in the core TestStand API for which you can create an object directly. The Engine class defines methods for creating objects for the other classes. In some cases, you can obtain objects for one class from another class. For example, you can obtain a Step object from the Sequence object that contains the step.
