The TestStand Sequence Editor launches a separate Execution window for each execution you start using the Execute menu. The Execution window contains the following panes:

  • Steps—A list of steps in the step group currently executing for the sequence invocation currently selected in the Call Stack pane.
  • Variables—The sequence context for the sequence invocation currently selected in the Call Stack pane.
  • Report—The report for the current execution.

Use the tabs at the bottom of the Execution window to navigate between the panes you have open. You can float or dock these panes anywhere within the Execution window.

In addition to the panes on in the Execution window, the sequence editor window contains the following panes you can use when you select a running or suspended Execution window:

  • Step Settings—The module and settings for the selected step or steps on the Steps pane of the Execution window.
  • Call Stack—The call stack for the execution thread currently running in the Threads pane.
  • Threads—All threads running in the execution.
  • Watch View—The values of watch expressions you enter.
  • Output—The output messages posted to TestStand.

The Status Bar displays information about the selected steps on the Steps pane of the Execution window.

Debugging

The sequence editor and TestStand User Interfaces give you several methods for debugging, including the ability to step over or into steps, step out of sequences, and set the next step to execute. You can also terminate execution, abort execution, toggle tracing, and run or loop on selected steps. These commands are located in the Execute menu, in the Debug menu, and on the Debug toolbar of the sequence editor and in the context menu for the Steps pane.
