The Output pane of the TestStand Sequence Editor displays information messages, warnings, and error messages. By default, the Output pane is empty. Use the OutputMessage expression function, the Engine.NewOutputMessage method, and the OutputMessage.Post method to generate the messages you want to display. Each message specifies a severity and a timestamp. The message can also specify an icon, a category, and additional execution information. Clicking on a message takes you to the step that generates the message.

By default, the sequence editor generates output messages for any information a source code control (SCC) provider generates.

The Output pane contains the following columns:

  • Icon—The icon for a message.
  • Message—The text for a message.
  • Time Stamp—The date and time TestStand posted the message.
  • Category—The category assigned to the message. TestStand uses the Source Control category for messages an SCC provider generates, and the Uncategorized category for messages that do not specify a category.
  • Severity—Displays one of the following severities: Information, Warning, or Error.
  • Step—The name of the step that is executing when TestStand posts a message from an execution.
  • Sequence—The name of the sequence that is executing when TestStand posts a message from an execution.
  • Sequence File—The name of the sequence file that is executing when TestStand posts a message from an execution.
  • Execution ID—The ID of the execution that posts a message.
  • Thread ID—The ID of the thread that posts a message from an execution.
