Re: Welcome to the NI TestStand Toolkit for Large Application Development!

Anke,
 
In TestStand, the Tools pull-down menu, there is an item "Update Sequence Files..."
 
 
Best regards,

Joe,

:smileyhappy:  thank you for the hint.

But honestly - a tool name like "Update Sequence Files..." is clearly a case of applied information hiding!

Best regards

AnkeS,

If you are currently editing the file, you can change the file format from Edit -> Sequence File Properties-> File Format comboBox

Re: Welcome to the NI TestStand Toolkit for Large Application Development!

Hi,

In case any one is interested I modified the 'TestStand Large Applications Development' package to allow TestStand version 4.1.0 XML sequences to be viewed.

I can upload the package.  The user just has to simply extract the archive and maintain the same directory tree and use the web browser Sequence file viewer in lieu of the stand alone EXE viewer.

Hi Bryan,

 

If you have chance please upload your modified one and share with us.  I currently have StestStand 4.1.0 which generate XML file that the current  'TestStand Large Applications Development' can't read.

 

Thank you very muck

The SequenceFile Viewer has been updated to view TestStand 4.1.x and prior Sequence Files. It can be found in the NI TestStand Toolkit for Large Application Development.

 

Note: TestStand 4.2 Sequence Files can not yet be viewed in the SequenceFile Viewer.

Re: Welcome to the NI TestStand Toolkit for Large Application Development!

You mention that the new update of the viewer supports sequence files saved in versions prior to 4.1.x. I have files saved in 3.5 that I would like to utilize the viewer with but I can not seem to get around the 4.0 xml requirement.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Welcome to the NI TestStand Toolkit for Large Application Development!

My apologies James,

 

I failed to specify that it will read 4.0.x and 4.1.x Sequence Files that are saved in XML format. The Sequence File Viewer relies on Sequence Files being saved in XML format due to the parsing method it implements. Unfortunately, in TestStand 3.5 and prior, the option to specify your Sequence File format on disk was not available and TestStand 3.5 and prior Sequence Files were saved in .ini format.
