I know I can probably do this in TestStand using LabView, however, that is not a luxury I have.
What I am trying to do is, when a failure occurs, dump a specific set of information into a separate (most likely text file) log file apart from the standard test stand report. For example, I might be keeping track of some buffer or test equipment status in stationglobals, when a test fails, I want to dump part of the station global into a different log, again, apart from the test stand report, is this possible?
Seems like the closest thing I found looking through TS and the support forums is to use ActiveX calls to maybe MS Word or Excel and generate something from there? I was hoping for something a bit more simple?
Writes the contents of an object to the file specified by pathString and associates the name specified by objectName with the object in the file.
If you call this method on an alias object, TestStand generates the stream using the object to which the alias refers. This method does not include alias subproperty objects in the stream. Refer to IsAliasObject for more information about alias objects.
