A TestStand User Interface is an application you deploy to a development system or a production station to provide a custom GUI for executing, debugging, or editing sequences. Simple user interfaces might only support running sequences, and custom sequence editors might support editing, running, and debugging sequences.

TestStand includes separate user interface applications developed in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, C#, and C++ (MFC). Because TestStand also includes the source code for each user interface, you can fully customize the user interfaces. You can create your own user interface using any programming language that can host ActiveX controls or control ActiveX Automation servers.

With the user interfaces in Editor Mode, you can modify sequences and create and modify sequence variables, sequence parameters, step properties, and so on. With the user interfaces in Operator Mode, you can start multiple concurrent executions, set breakpoints, and single-step through sequences.
