Hi,

 

First of all, there's a testStand dedicated forum. You should post there to get more answers.

 

Second, I'm not sure what you are calling "sequence context variables". what are you trying to achieve?

so should i post it in teststand forum or can continue here ?

 

by "sequence context variables" i mean variables in teststand ( like Locals , RunState , etc...)

actually the thing is i have a vi to get input from user (which i've loaded in teststand as a step, call this sequence file as "S"), i need to store those inputs in teststand variables by accessing sequence context of S in labview (i've created corresponding variables in teststand).

You can access TestStand variables from within LabVIEW using the sequence context but it needs some programming.

 

maybe, the best way to do what I think you're trying to do is pass the output of your LabVIEW VI directly to a TestStand Local variable (in the module adapter)

 

 

you may find this usefull: http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/323435a.pdf   Sequence context p.34
